With words and images, I am telling my story. Through art, through sculpture, I am remembering HERstory...

elegant strength

"I know all the swear words. I just don't use them. There are worse things in life than being called a Lady."

- Irene Dunne (1898-1990)

My beautiful mother-in-law, Maria de Lourdes is a lady.
Her cousin, Marta is a lady.

These women have an elegant spirit, their lives are illuminated in grace and delicate femininity.

These are two of the strongest women I know.
Being feminine, does not equal being weak.
A lady is not always a damsel in distress...
