Art by Dorothy Atkins

In the middle of the night when no one is listening, I paint women from my soul.  Connecting deep thoughts about life and my dreams. I paint them with pride and reverence for their strong presence and beauty.  Not just a fashion statement but caring without uttering a sound.  They make me brave.  Created from words I have heard inspired me to paint in bold colors, lines, unmatched shapes and women in assorted colors.  The colors, the rituals of the people left a strong impression on me.  My ladies "talk stories" that take me to a place of joy and "One Love." They will not be ignored.
