Wearable Art for Self Confidence
We each are unique and extraordinary, and that’s what makes this world such a vibrant and interesting place. I find particular inspiration in the incredible attitudes of women of different cultures. Every woman deserves to feel confident and empowered on her own terms.
I honor my own confidence by sharing my passion with you: creating portraits of powerful women with inspiring attitudes. I launched Scarves for Life to share this empowerment with you, so that you can feel good while expressing yourself.
Each design invokes a specific memory which is at once universal, but totally unique to you.
Scarves for Life
I’ve had the privilege of observing India’s incredibly rich cultural history of textile design. Many contemporary Indian women choose to follow tradition by dressing modestly, but they do so while also showing their personality through vibrant colors and intricate embroidery.
These women and their colorful garments are the inspiration behind Scarves for Life. I developed this project purely to share the message of confidence and empowerment to women around the world. These scarves allow me to share my memories and observations of confident women as a wearable art piece for you.
Inspired by Women Around The World
Scarves have a bit of a tarnished historical reputation, having been used in many cultures to obscure femininity – hiding our bodies and faces and in turn, our minds as well. Learning about this history triggered some intense emotions in me; I believe that all women should be seen and celebrated on their own terms and I share that belief through my art.
These scarves were created as wearable art to inspire self-confidence and pride in women everywhere, no matter their cultural background. All women, everywhere deserve to feel beautiful and empowered and to be fearless when asserting their intelligence.
Style On Your Terms
Like my paintings, each one of my Scarves for Life is a work of art. With a message of empowerment, these scarves are designed to be styled in a number of different ways. Whether you choose to cover up or make a statement, a piece from my Scarves for Life collection empowers you to show your inner strength however you wish.
Memory is specific to the individual. Our memories grow and change over time as we gather new acquaintances, experiences, and self-discoveries. I've always been fascinated by memory, because it is completely unique. Scarves for Life is my way of representing the memories I have of inspirational women.
Four unique designs, each telling distinctive stories of empowerment.
I chose these specific portraits: Purpose, What Now When You Are Gone, Above The Bar and Swim My Lady – as the original artwork to be featured on my scarves because the feeling and memories they represent are universally understood.
Dig deep and ask yourself: what brings you the most pleasure in life? Every day is filled with opportunities to learn and grow. You only have one life to live – celebrate your curiosity and thirst for adventure.
This scarf is a celebration of cherished memories with a dear friend. “I wonder what’s happened to you now. When I wear this scarf, it feels like hugging you. It reminds me of you and of that wonderful energy you and I chose once, long ago, to share.”
Raise your standards and everything else will follow. The universe is pretty cool that way! Remember that time you set the bar high and it paid off? Above The Bar is all about those moments when you stood up for yourself and reaped the rewards. Keep on riding that high!
We’re all swimming through life, but some strokes are easier than others. Take big strokes with outstretched arms and you’ll get to where you want to be. And when you’re done with your laps? Wrap yourself in the warm, supportive embrace of your scarf and do a little dance.
