Their Words Will Never Hurt Her Again


This Painting, "Their Words Will Never Hurt Her Again" was created for the Contemporary Art Auction by Maitre Pierre Cornette de Saint Cyr held in October 2011, in Paris, France. 

I was so honored to be apart of the art auction amongst masters of contemporary art like; Dave Lachapelle, Andy Warhol, Basquiat, etc.

This was one of the 3 paintings I completed for the auction. I was reading lots of articles at the time about the problems of bullying and the effects that it can have on a person. I wanted to create a painting that took on the issue, but also added the element of empowerment. I have always been a fan of classic fairy tales, and the story of Cinderella seemed perfect! I added my own fashion twist of coarse, and showed a confident Cinderella scrubbing away the evil names called to her by her step-sisters! This piece means a lot to me and is an absolute favorite of mine!
