women in the art world

Maud Stevens Wagner - the first known female tattoo artist in the United States (1907)

I have more incredible women in my life that I can count. An amazing mother. A bad-ass wife. You know all about my rad daughter. FIVE beautiful sisters and countless others. I would be nothing without them.

Here’s another song that Harper sang recently and I thought it was perfect for today. Celebrate the Women in your life today and sing along with Harper!

Areeba Siddique’s Art Connects Her to Women Around the World

This post is in celebration of Women’s History Month. Throughout March, we’ll be highlighting the stories of women doing extraordinary things around the world.

Art didn’t always bring Areeba Siddique (@ohareeba) the joy it does today. “Drawing used to make me anxious,” says the 19-year-old from Pakistan. “I would think, ‘What if it doesn’t turn out good enough?’” As her style evolved, Areeba started overlaying quotes and drawings, writing poems and sketching comics in a style more akin to collage — she calls them art journals — that made it feel easier to touch on topics of religion, identity and feminism. “I grew up in a house full of women,” says Areeba. “My history is female. It’s in my bones. It helps me connect to other women.” Soon, Areeba hopes to go to art school to continue her craft and spread her message. “I want my illustrations to speak to other covered Muslim women — and all women, regardless of race or religion — and let them know that we’re all in this together.” #WomensDay
