Women Warriors is a series of assemblage wall masks initially inspired by the 2020 Women's Suffrage Centennial, celebrating the 19th Amendment when women won the right to vote. Yet, in 2022, we suffer through a devolution in history as we continue the struggle for women’s rights and equality. All of us are affected by anti-women legislation. We women are of all colors and ages. We are mothers, grandmothers, sisters, children, wives, friends. We contribute to the workforce, to the wealth and ideas that make our country civilized and strong. The Women Warrior themes include the Opioid crisis, COVID, environmental issues. Everything in a civilized Democracy that needs our compassion and action.
Wall masks are created largely from recycled materials as, newspaper, grocery bags, rattan, wood scrap, toys, bullet shells.
