These works are from my series Sistership. They are visual letters written/drawn to artists who are alive in my mind,....many of them for most of my life. The letter/drawings are conversations with them, and are my recognition of connection and interdependence I have with others. I use the word ‘sistership' to reference the nautical term and to reference an idea of ‘fellowship’ inclusive of women. Through this set of drawings, I wish to address the absence of tribute for powerful connections between minorities and women that gather outside a family unit.
