This is my award winning collage "A Coven of Stepmothers" shown at
the DaVinci Art Alliance in Philadelphia

The image of the "evil stepmother" motivated me to research the cause for this common theme.  The belief that stepmothers are evil witches are as old as familes and villages and are in many cultures.  As in many preconceived beliefs we have, this is one where perhaps we are trying to give negative traits to something we fear and are ignorant of - in this case we fear the power of the feminine.

If you are interested in having me interpret any symbolic, spiritual or cultural themes or ideas,
please send me a note from my "contact" page.
