How full of dreams and magical we girls are from the moment we come into the world. Courageous, curious, unique, imaginative, and daring. What started out as a few fun sketches to record memories from my childhood is turning into a series of paintings fueled by dizzying giddiness.
My “Celebrating Girlhood” collection is ongoing, and it’s all about Bella Lang. Her hair is wild and her limbs appear to dance independently of her body, and it’s because she’s bursting with energy. She’s whimsy and fun. She dresses in her own distinct styles, which is dictated not by fashion trends but by her passion-filled heart. Excited and enthusiastic about the world, she wakes up with a “yippee!” on her lips and a kick in her heels, then off she goes to gather adventures and conquer obstacles. Always ready for new experiences, she’s been a baker, a gardener, a model, an adventurer, a ballerina, and even queen for a day. Dirt, rain, heights, these things don’t stop her. She splashes in puddles, laughs at the wind, and speeds down hills on her bicycle. She’s unencumbered by judgements and expectations, because she’s too busy loving being Bella Lang. She lives, loves, laughs and plays with wild abandon. She’s free.
I hope that Bella will remind you, as she has me, to keep your inner girl close to your heart and care for her. And to all the girls living in the state of Girlhood, this is your time, so be enchanting and wondrous. Don’t conform, instead be your best self: strong, talented, lovely, smart, inquisitive and interesting. But most importantly, be brave in the choices you make for your life. We love that about you!

“All grown-ups were once children… but only few of them remember it.”
The inspiration for my “Le Petit Noël” collection came from a beloved childhood book, “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. I grew up in the aftermath of the Vietnam War where scarcity was the subject on everyone’s lips, and books were regarded as treasures. I protected my copy fiercely from the grubby hands of other children as if it were a living, breathing being. I read from it every day, and everyday it transported me to a world of enchantment, where a child’s truth is the world’s truth, and where a thin strip of light always finds a way to shine across the dark desert of despair.
“‘What makes the desert beautiful,’ said the little prince, ‘is that somewhere it hides a well…’”
I wanted this collection to capture the sense of surprise, whimsy and optimism for the world that I discovered within those pages. To immortalize that sense of wonderment, magic, and believe for a world experienced with a pure heart, a world where a child can sew a sliver of hope into her shirt sleeve and carry it with her into adulthood.
“It is only with the heart that one can see clearly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.”
