This series is a reflection on femininity, with her many subtleties, strengths and the different faces she pulls on and off as she moves through the world.
Though I had less canvases to paint than faces observed amongst wearers, I chose to focus on the three I collide with most frequently, living in the very beautiful but often harsh African continent.

the first is the Thinker
the erudite, the inventor, the young sage
knowledge enables her to design the architecture of her existence
it empowers her to move through the world with confidence
she is propelled to share what she has gathered
for all information is only borrowed
it grows richer with every mind it occupies
breaking down barriers built by ignorance, ego or power
and with clear vision
sounding out a symphony of change
