Shades of her
Womanhood is complex and there is no right or wrong in being a woman. I believe it is important that women work together to create images of womanhood so they can be as honest and represented as possible. I like to capture women I know in a range of emotions. These portraits can show her vulnerability, her inner fiery, or her reaching out to her reflection. As an artist, I want to continue to explore the cosmos of emotions and stories within women from all ages, sizes, countries and classes.

Judged by Mika Ninagawa:
Every portrait was powerful.
They thoroughly capture the individuality of the person being portrayed and the artist's originality come out distinctly. It's a well-balanced work.
