Artist's description:

A Patchwork of a Woman

I am a woman, a female and proud of it.
Yet moments of my life it is for this very fact that I have been reminded that I am less intelligent, less strong and worth less. I will admit that the variations of sexism did (unconsciously) eat away at my confidence and caused me to wonder that there must be a grain of truth in this universal belief that women are the weaker sex and for years I allowed this seed of doubt to grow and affect my choices in life. I wonder if I had been born a man whether I would have had the same struggles that I had in my life and the frustrating fact is that I don't think I would have - this is a fact - a sad one but true all the same.
A woman's fight for equality is still very much present in our lives today and the more we are made aware of what is going on in the world the better equipped we are in avoiding the repeated pattern of subjugation.
A Patchwork of a Woman represents just a fraction of ideas and images related to me and my ideas of womanhood. I repeat this is just a fraction and like a patchwork it may seem like a mismatch of parts but to me these elements (and many more) make up who I am - a proud female.
