The images are beautiful and reflect a maturity in talent while addressing the common challenges, ideas and beliefs of youth. Her rendition of female butterflies, beautiful creatures with exotic wings, crystals, emeralds, sapphires and faces of teenage girls. The message, not spoken, speaks volumes: we can fly, we can hide, we can be.
