(Acrylic, Comics, and Resin).
The background is a collage of vintage Wonder Woman comics. The acrylic overlay is in soft pink with vibrant blue eyes. The resin coating has a pink tint to it to add to the softness. Although soft in color, the subject conveys empowerment, optimism, and positivity, after all, she’s Wonder Woman.
“The world of art as a female artist has been an education in empowerment. Strong women who believe that by lifting other women they, in turn, lift themselves. I have watched many women in the industry helping emerging artists by creating online classes to move forward and grow their careers.
After encountering so many positive female influencers, I find myself eager to pass along what I have learned to women I have met along the way. There is truly room at the table for everyone.”
