The Dresses - a journey toward freedom
“IT IS ONE THING TO GET A GIRL OUT OF A CAGE. IT IS ANOTHER TO GET THE CAGE OUT OF THE GIRL. THESE DRESSES ARE ABOUT THAT JOURNEY.”

The original paintings of this first collection of 7 dresses are not for sale. They are my story. They are my personal journey out of the bondage of perfectionism and shame based thinking. Each dress has a lesson about personal freedom that I had to live through. Some lessons were harder than others - all a gift. There's no face because, as they say, comparison is the thief of joy. I ache for any and every girl (of any age) to be able to picture herself in these dresses - to put them on whenever they need to see themselves as the amazingly beautiful creations they are!
I should note here that one of the sweetest surprises has been the reaction of almost every man who has seen these dresses. They actually get it. They want the best for womankind. Yes, I have met and even listened to some powerfully shallow opinion makers, so poor in spirit and self absorbed - but they are both male and female. There will never be an end to people making wealth by telling women what they are lacking. So, I guess I just want to applaud the many many people I continue to meet who see the best in others and love them just the way they are. They are my heroes. They are who I want to become.
