Celebrating Women Who Take Up Space

Posted by Caitlin Shirock on

This is International Women's Month

Which has me thinking about my own journey as a woman - running a business, being a wife and mom, and being MYSELF as an artist.

This year has been all about jumping and risk taking - and with that comes more opportunities for fear to show up. I am trying to recognize this and remember to stand tall and take up space through it all.

I love the way I see more women being recognized for their accomplishments these days. We’re fixing this supposed “man’s world” and saying goodbye to that nonsense. It’s an equal world and I’m so ready to be a part of this change. I’m celebrating this and finding the freedom in it!

The world is seeing how incredible women are, and the power that comes with holding her up, not pushing her down. I am pushing through old feelings of not being able to say, dance, move, paint, or create the way I want. And as I work those feelings out of my system, I’m welcoming new, beautiful, strong feelings of empowerment, importance and space!

Go ahead, strike a power pose. Take up all the room you need. You are amazing, you are beautiful, and the world needs more of YOU in it.

New Original Art Collection: Emotive Hearts

I've witnessed heartbreak and healing in the aftermath of yet another school shooting in Nashville, Tennessee, on March 27th. And, because I've been struggling to find the right words to adequately express all of my emotions about this tragedy, I’ve been painting.


Pardon me, did you say, Well + Wonder?

I've dreamt of being invited to join a group of emerging southern artists known as the Well + Wonder Artists Collective. I am excited to announce that I am now one of their artists and have a new exclusive collection of original artworks now available on their website!


How I Found Myself Again in the Art

Signing a lease on my very own studio space earlier this year felt like taking a huge leap of faith because I had not worked as an artist outside of my house since since I moved to Nashville eight years ago. Now, I'm so glad that I gave myself permission to take up more space.
