"SPACE COWGIRLS" is an exploration into themes of nostalgia, loss, and preservation through anachronistic dreamscapes. The series is set in the southwest because I fell in love with that part of the US after taking a trip into southern Utah and learning that my great grandma, who lived on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, also loved to paint those landscapes. I'm inspired by the folklore and stories of UFO sightings in the southwestern USA, and my own love since childhood of adventures in the Old West and Outer Space. It's my intention that the work will make viewers curious about what could be out there amongst the terrestrial vistas which have captured humanity's imaginations for centuries.
