International Women's Day 2017
Today started like any other, a chaotic balance of baby, house, life and art - but then it got crazy different because my "Earth and Moon Boobs" (my two most recent sculptures) got a ton of attention on social media; getting reposted by accounts advocating women's rights (reproductive, public breastfeeding, exposure, etc). Aside from the initial rush of excitement that my art was getting attention, what hit me was that women were identifying with my art as a symbol of pride, resistance, assurance, and identity. I was incredibly humbled, but also driven to create more - this is art to me; I made you feel something that I feel, and now we're in this together.
To all women out there - keep creating. Be it art, gardens, babies, discoveries, inventions - let's rule the world.
