Limited Edition Print of Aphrodite
My take on the classic ‘Birth of Venus’ by Botticelli. Venus, known as the goddess of love and beauty or Aphrodite as she was known by the Greeks is such a powerful symbol because she represents beauty in the physical and spiritual sense, and contemplating her beauty brings you closer to the divine.
I painted this in a time of massive self growth, I actually felt like I was shedding the skin of my former self, around the time I turned 30. Around the time I could no longer stand the way I treated myself or let others treat me. I wanted to take the power of my life back, and own my story, own who I was, physically, emotionally and live my life completely authentically. Like any kind of growth it was painful and uncomfortable and I was filled with fear, so much so that when I came through the other side of it and made life changing decisions it was like some kind of rebirth.
To me this painting represents the awakening and owning of your feminine energy 💖 and I hope whoever needs to see this, sees it 🌸
