The human woman, the female, is often depicted in Wilhelmina's work. The female is shown in many pieces as not only being a beautiful and intrinsic form on the outside (the flesh), but a deep and meaningful soul with thoughts, hopes, and feelings (the depth).

Two tongue-in-cheek pieces - sexualized dolls. Barbie represents female perfection in a very unrealistic way - impossible body proportions, exaggerated hair, etc. Original barbies (second one has Ken getting a lap dance) dressed in stripper gear in vintage birdcages with Barbie furniture, tattoos, wine bottles and glasses, Barbie "money", cigarettes, playing cards, beads, lights, disco ball, stripper pole, installed lighting (lcd). These are "statement pieces" -- perfect for the "man cave."
"The Beast Within"
She who is one with the earth but travels an unknown path. She who is the goddess in the moon and all seeing eye. She who has the heart of a tiger - strong, powerful and protective. The beast within - she is woman.
Inspired by Salvador Dali. Digital collage.
She waits for her man at sea as the heavens beckon and shine on. There is the scent of danger in the seas and on land. She's exposed and vulnerable but she awaits open-armed, baring her soul.
"A Rose Amongst Thorns"
She sits amongst the most fearful of creatures who prey on her. They have lined up to conquest. They hang in the trees, brazen. They fly to her threatening her tender heart. Their dark souls speak languages she doesn't comprehend. Yet she folds her limbs up as a flower whose petals curl up in the eve to protect her fragile self. She has the strength of wings that will take her to where she needs to go and because of that she will endure and prevail.
