Her Little Pocket of Happy

Her Little Pocket of Happy


On the morning I started this series, I woke up with the magical feeling of having a "pocket of happiness" between my legs. After years of healing from sexual trauma, this was a little miracle - to feel so connected to my body as a source of pleasure, not just for another, but for myself. 

So I made a painting to celebrate the feeling and integrate it.

I placed the painting, "Her Little Pocket of Happy", above my bed and shortly thereafter met my beloved. From the blissful feelings of my new relationship, I created this series celebrating womanhood and femininity.
