Stepping Outside Art

“Sisterhood: Think Tank”

An artist looked at one of my earlier works and said it reminded her that “our lives are framed by our families,” and it stuck with me, because unlike our friends, we don’t get to choose our families.

And I thought about what stepping out of that frame would look like. For me, being a woman, there’s been a ton of support, communication, empathy and kindness from other women. And so much of what I’ve learnt has been the result of an unbranded, all-inclusive sisterhood that doesn’t have a name, yet it’s always been a part of who I am.

This ever growing network of women has helped me become successful at thinking outside the box. Taking chances. Believing in myself, building up my confidence through the many ways that I’ve failed, and knowing there’s always been a woman who will listen, who will offer advice, who will remind me that I am worthy.

I’m forever grateful to She/Her 🙏❤️
