Motherly Love

I created a portrait series depicting the special bond between mother and child that Mary Cassatt focused on in her works. I portrayed women and children of various cultures –South American, Asian, African – instead of Caucasian women and children, as Mary Cassatt did. I painted portraits of mothers and their children from Guatemala, Vietnam, and Mozambique. This idea reflects my desire to represent all cultures equally and experience more diversity in my life. I was surprised to find out how much I enjoyed using and experimenting with watercolor.
