In honor of Women’s History month, I wanted to create an art print of an American icon symbolizing strong women. One who epitomizes the hard-working, patriotic women from the greatest generation.


I have been wanting to do this print for a long time. I’ve been slowly working on the drawing for this print and for a sister print, for about two years. Rosie and the dedicated women like her and the contribution they made to the war effort have always held a special place in my heart. They helped build the bombers, which as a child, I became obsessed with. Now that I’m grown, their sacrifices have strongly influenced my artwork. As seen in my B-17 nose art bomber panel series. I can’t think of a more perfect icon that symbolizes the true American spirit, which my daughter can look up to and I can have proudly hanging in my own home. I hope you enjoy her as much as I have.


A tribute, to Rosie the riveter.
