Research shows that women on average have the best time of their lives between the ages of 50 and 80. Last summer I started a project in which I interview and portray women who follow their heart in their work or in other creative fields later in life. There are an incredible number of inspiring women who become more quirky, lively and independent from the age of 50. They seem to become who they essentially are and act accordingly. With pleasure, love and curiosity I put them in the light by painting them and telling their story. It might become a book or who knows, a section in a magazine.

This is my painting of Alexandra Huguette, 62, fashion designer.
