Women of the Wild West

Proceeds of all sales benefit Climb Wyoming

This Notable to Notorious collection of women who made their mark on the Wild West looks past the traditional beauty of portraiture and aims to uncover the texture, layers and colors that illuminated these iconic figures in their day, while still resonating today.

The execution of faces in more realistic, yet pixelated manner, juxtaposed with unpredictable, gestural lines and bold colors speak to the spirit of these women. Some found themselves amongst more noble pursuits than others, but all showcased a strength and determination not often found publicly amongst their peers of the era.

All source photography was uncovered in black and white, which allowed the artist to re-imagine the color palette of this collection in a way that felt authentic to my bold-color body of work, as well as revealing the essence of the subjects.
