 Artist Statement:

I am a very romantic person who believes in love, and furthermore, loving life. I think of romance not as defined by a relationship, but as a complete way of living. The nature of the world is rooted in beauty and it is always there if you look for it. That is what I try to show in my work.

BUT I also love romance between people.  I have been reading romance novels since I was a teen, and I was always riveted by the depictions of all these beautiful people falling in and out of passionate love. Kilts and corsets and whirlwind affairs of the heart. Literary, historical, traditional - I like them all.

Women are often ridiculed for loving the romance genre. We’re told by men and other women (which is even sadder) that romance is for dumb people who can’t read “regular” books, or that we have bad relationships at home and are escaping. So many assumptions and most of them untrue. So many women are made to feel like reading romance is a shameful secret to hide or that it’s a guilty pleasure. I’ve felt pressured into denying I like them in past.


Romance is a 1.08 BILLION dollar industry every year and is the number one selling genre. Someone is reading it! There are so many fun subgenres, as well as a wonderfully prolific amount of queer romances out these days. I really think there’s a romance out there for everyone.

The worst lie I was ever told about reading romance novels, was that it would give me extremely unrealistic expectations, and I’d never be satisfied with a regular relationship. I’m not an idiot, and of course I’m not going to be running off with a princess, duke, or some other monarch. However, they did give me lofty expectations of what love should be.

That’s never been bad for me. I have ended so many bad relationships knowing I deserved more. And eventually I got it in my thirties. I have been with my partner almost four years and he’s the most loving man I’ve ever known, who makes me feel like a princess myself.

Never think you are worthy of less, and never let anyone tell you what to read!
