Breast cancer wonder woman

Breast Cancer Wonder Woman / 8” x 12” / Acrylic on recycled wood / 2008

My experience in breast cancer research, the symbolism of action heros, and the joint international struggle to erradicate cancer lead to the creation of this painting. As can be seen, my work has a strong Roy Lichtenstein influence. Here, I used washes of white over most areas except those that I wished to really stand out to emphasize the message of the painting.
