Portrait of the artist. Human collagraph created with handmade ink on frosted mylar. this piece is part of the "Pressing the issue" series. The work comments on contemporary body issues. The message behind the art is to show women that they are beautiful no matter their height, weight, etc. I created the art with hope to empower women of every shape, size and age, to show them what they might not already see.
