What’s the best way someone has responded to your artwork
I began my series of feminist portraiture in 2016: First in this series was a painting of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. In partnership with feminist and muse Diana Kane we made the RBG portrait into a wearable pin, which Diana sells in her Brooklyn Boutique. The pin has reached a lot of people and was even worn by Madonna at the 2017 Women’s March. In 2019 I received a handwritten thank you note from RBG herself. During my professional career, I have always painted women and have always been a feminist. The appreciation of this work and my perspective is very meaningful to me.F
