Since the beginning of time women have held the world on their shoulders. Women are the Symbol of Life. The Maker of Unconditional Love. A woman is both Soft and Powerful. Practical and Spiritual. A Woman in her Essence is a Gift to the World. A Symbol of Strength and Freedom. And the exploration of the man's eye. I created this gallery to express the symbolism of women throughout history as more than just nude artwork but as a gift to the world. Without women the world would not be what it is today. Each artwork represents the assets of a woman through symbolism.
