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!
