This mixed-media artwork was inspired by the spirit of resilience, and celebrates the meaningful work of Womankind. It draws direct inspiration from the iconic bird that is the signature symbol for Womankind. A rising phoenix that is regenerative and mythical across cultures, at the same time resembling a flower unfolding in bloom. With the transformation of industrial metal as a material into a work of art, the piece evokes fragility yet a deep strength through its form. This work signifies hope.

For me, resilience is a journey, one of personal growth. Through resilience, one can gain confidence in overcoming life's challenges. Our capacity to heal and adapt, is truly astounding. One is able to discover more about one's humanity and the gift of life that keeps giving. As we share our stories of resilience, we can inspire and encourage others in the process. In art, one is able to grasp the profound value of artistic expression by overcoming the odds, and not giving up. Artists understand the important role of resilience as we seek the highest levels of creative expression despite the barriers and constrains within society.
