The Plate of Temptation was created from a feminine and feminist perspective as it engages and provokes you to ask challenging question of female’s intentions. No matter which way you turn this painting, your curiosity evokes and emotional response.

All 3 women (including the Black/White self-portrait) are able to use their inner voices, mind, talent, skills, sensuality, sexuality and bodies to state an opinion.

All the females in this painting can relate to each other through the ways they display their silent power of persuasion to advance to the task of the mutual goal. Goal: Bring awareness of their purpose to contribute to changing the societal roles. They are able to use their inner voices, mind, talent, social skills, sensuality, sexuality, and femininity. This defines their purpose.

The Indian Princess (The Seductress during the Ottoman Empire ) was extremely clever to use her wit, position of power and seduction, to save her own slave women and sisters.

The woman depicted on the Florentine Plate is Catherine Parr, the 6th wife of Henry VIII (who had silent power) and survived him as she got him to change the heir of the ruling royalty to young Queen Elizabeth, her stepdaughter, and brought forth the Protestant religion to court.

My B/W self-portrait of me is the modern woman in the process of rotating through history, addressing issues through art and activism. A sunflower head is placed in the vagina area (birth canal) as I hold a lipstick in one hand (sensuality) a knife in the other (ability to self-protect). I have a willingness to own what is cost us and other women to express our thoughts, own our bodies, own our sexuality and not be afraid to speak our voices.

Will be exhibited for Twists & Turns at the Brooks Theatre Gallery from 9/12/18 – 10/30/18, 8 performances of DEATHTRAP, October’s First Friday Art Walk at the Brooks Theatre Gallery, Oceanside Theatre Company’s Gala Event.
2nd Place - MiraCosta College, Kruglak Gallery, May 2018.

I was really delighted with this beautiful hand embroidered banner. It was dispatched promptly and Trish was so kind to send me a t-shirt designed by her as well as her book on mental health and art. I feel most privileged to own this wonderful banner which takes pride of place on my bedroom wall. Many many thanks, Trish!

This flower pin from Trish's shop is beyond fabulous. Perfect and beautifully made. I was in a rush to receive it, as needed it for a party only a few days from the date of purchase. Trish's communication regarding my deadline was so efficient and prompt, and she ensured that I would have the pin super-fast. She is a joy to do business with and clearly makes sure that her customers have the best level of service possible. Not a doubt in my mind that I will be shopping with her again very soon. Thank you Trish!!!!!
