Happy International Women’s Day 2020

Happy International Women’s Day:
Happy International Women’s day to you. I made a little something for us arty ladies. This poem “Don’t be an Artist, be a Lady” is a selection of the many comments, DM’s and unsolicited advice I have received over the years on the back of being a woman who enjoys creating art.

Of course I was inspired to make this video by the Cynthia Nixon rendition of “Be a Lady, They Said”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZPab… The video which illustrates the pressures of being a women. Female artists such as Artemisia Gentileschi, Rosa Bonheur, Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun and Sofonisba Anguissola certainly benefited from ignoring the noise and living their lives on their own terms.
