In current usage a “virago” is an opinionated, aggressive, loud-voiced, ill-tempered, shrewish woman. The original meaning of the word, though, was a woman of strength or spirit, a powerful woman; a warrior woman.  VIRAGO is a collection of strong women, powerful women, a celebration of warriors wearing their armor, whatever it might be.
The material goal of VIRAGO is to produce a collected limited edition art album and accompanying gallery collection, the proceeds of which will go to benefit LGBTQIA youth in the Louisville, Kentucky and Southern Indiana area.

VIRAGO is my current project.

If you wish to be a part of this collection as a model/collaborator, please contact me at
