Anne an award winning French writer in a male dominated profession. Her nomadic childhood and journalism career sent her on discovery journeys of French islands and their insular communities. A connection so deep and profound to the islanders’ story gave Anne inspiration for her creative writing. At the time, journalism was a male dominated field. In spite of the struggles and discrimination she was subject to, Anne persevered and found her voice through pen and paper as a revered novelist. The painting L'AMOUR DE CALVI represents the island influence and the success of overcoming obstacles, to now rest ashore and enjoy the view of where you have sailed and made waves.
Simone was a beautiful African women who's strength and beauty caught the eye of a decorated military man. This was her introduction to a foreign European upper class life. Soon after Simone and her child were abandoned in France. Like many women do, she lived the rest of her life in the shadows. Her son honors his mother's life as he rediscovers his father's ancestral lands and both of their rightful heritage. The models in the painting TIS THE SEASON lived a life in the shadows, as coat hangers do in the eyes of the fashion world. This painting is part of a series in homage to them, and the renowned sketch artist Kenneth Paul Block who first took notice of these women in the heyday of the 1960's fashion industry. Tisha Balesi Wood's inspiration is to give the models a face, a soul and honor the flowers on the runway.

She inspires us to embrace the adventure of life with its challenges and beauty. Her unstoppable spirit is her gift and her love of nature inspires all. The painting SNOW DRIFTERS and Quinn share the same adventurous spirit and love of nature. We believe in Quinn as she believes in the spirit of mother earth.
