This painting is in dedication to my mum, not at all because of the role one plays in my life, but her strength as an individual. The 'Black Woman' is a cultural icon, often self-sacrificing whilst being a homemaker, breadwinner and nurturer all at once. I made this painting as a young black woman celebrating the accomplishment of black women all over.
