Warrior Women

Theresa Dark's avatar Theresa Dark

My "Warrior Women" project came to fruition from observing and listening to my family and friends as they navigate through difficultt circumstances in life. I will create a beautiful headdress for each one by depicting their inner beauty, courage, strength and tenacity using encaustic wax, metal, found objects and fiber. The Warrior Woman's ability to overcome traumatic experiences such as prejudice, depression, sexual assault, loss of a child, loss of country and culture by using their inner power to manifest a more desirable life for themselves and their loved ones is inspiring to me and others they encounter.
