...but I just can't help myself. Tonight I made three special little ACEOs in mixed media to sell on Ebay. Each one depicts the beauty, strength and wonderment that is WOMAN. You could say I'm celebrating my existence as a female, and a creative one at that.
I have always thought that women have long been ignored for their creative strengths - particularly in the field of textile, mixed media and fibre art. Sure we may bring to the field a set of aesthetics that are emotional and feminine, but I have never been ashamed of this. Our art is as serious as any man's and we should never forget that. I know Frida has been used time and time again as a symbol of all that is right in the world of the womens' art movement; in fact, she has almost become a cliche in this respect, but what she stands for will never die.
