The purpose of this illustrative portrait series is to celebrate Iconic Women and their diversity. An Iconic Woman is a woman who claims her right to living the kind of life she dreams for herself. Women who are on the cutting edge of what exists, the ones pushing the edges out further to expand what is possible, encouraging other women to do the same! What is cutting edge about this Iconic Women’s portrait series is that it is about putting creativity in the lead, and trusting the unknown. Celebrating and bringing to awareness that we live in a time where women artists, musicians, entrepreneurs are no longer invisible. This series exists to inspire women to become whoever they imagine themselves to be. The art becomes a powerful means of personal healing, emancipation and empowerment.
All of the portraits are hand drawn with Faber Castell ink pens on paper and are large format at least 3 feet x 3 feet at 100% and larger.
Through this process it has become apparent to me that this series desires to exist indefinitely and take on a life of it’s own. The series is now open to accepting commissions to have your very own Iconic Portrait and be included in the series and your portrait will be included in every showing of the Iconic portraits.
