Bellydancing Babe


"The Gypsy Dancer appears to be free from the societal constraints. The Gypsy as the Wild Woman archetype has magical powers, powers which make her dangerous. She is out-of-control, or at least beyond the control of the patriarchy. She evokes fear, especially in the subconscious where the Wild Woman lurks within us all. We are afraid to let her out because we may loose control." ---Laurel Victoria Gray

your paintings are very special winnierose. The characters, the movements and colours....I really do think you'll make a wonderful children's book illustrator!
