“Welcome to My Jungle” fine art giclée print


I painted “Welcome to My Jungle” as a kind of feminist meditation on the acceptance and power of a beautiful older woman’s body.  It holds so many secrets, so much history.  It is comfortable with its inner tiger.  Also, an older woman can stand up to and be friends with the tigers around her.  My nude lady holds a lotus, to symbolize the hard won serenity of experience, and the courage to go on.  Woman and tiger both gaze directly at the viewer, as if to say, “This is me.  See me. Take me as I am.  Or not.”
