I’ve been reading so much about women’s rights being abused everywhere in the world recently – from Honduras to America – we seem to lose all the hard earned rights to our own body and what to do with it. Read this article here and weep.

I was so upset and angry about this article and tried to think of why it made me so upset, and a large part of the reason is that these are ‘my sisters’, what happens to them happens to me, and it shouldn’t happen. The long history of women’s rights (or the lack of them) has shown we only get things done, if we stick together.

So this is what this image is about. sisters under the skin, no matter what colour or where we are. :-)

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)

    Beautiful in every way Sybille ♥

  • Thanks so much Carol. Greatly appreciated. :-) The artist asked me to use one of her stock images to make something along the lines of This is Who We Are and I chose this particular image, however, the article was still going round my head and it turned out to be one of those images that really touched me deeply – similar to Sisters. xoxo ♥
