In my artwork, I wanted to capture this message of strength and perseverance in the form of a painting that represents the woman’s journey through life. She is depicted as strong and confident, wearing armor made out of love, which represent her ability to grow in any environment with or without support from others. This is my first art piece made in the United States. The symbol of a woman is very common on Bosnian carpets, and I wanted to honor that tradition by creating a piece that was reminiscent of the patterns I used to see growing up.
