As an artist, I desire to evoke the qualities of the Goddess in my work. I am influenced by "Goddesses In Every Woman" written by Jean Shinoda Bolen. Her insightful book explores the aging process through stories of the Goddesses. At 56, closer to Crone than Maiden, I envision the "Witch Dorothy" series as a self portrait that defies age. The journey is both physical and metaphorical; the iconic imagery draws the viewer in. My hope is that at every step along the path, I will gain the wisdom that comes with experience and continue to know the girl in me.
"Witch Dorothy" is an ongoing project. The journey began March, 2014. Images available as Fuji Chrome Prints through the artist.
