Women don't have a sense of humor. Women don't care about politics. Women don't want to be politicians. For eight years, these false truisms formed a haunting soundtrack to French cartoonist Catherine Beaunez's life.

It is my personal philosophy that I am better when I am with others than when I am by myself. I truly believe that people make better decisions when they come together. That is why the big circles in my painting overlap and the places where they do are more intense, interesting and expressive.
However, time alone is sometimes necessary and that is why I have allowed for single circles to float away on their own and express their individuality.

Wood has the capacity to breathe life into a sculpture and capture the essence of its form. Humaira Abid utilizes the organic properties of this material to give her art a rich delicacy that contrasts with the material's inherent hardness. In Mother and Child, she carves out a large rosebud form with the luscious quality of a real flower. By casting a smaller, inset rosebud out of bronze, Humaira gives Mother and Child added inner strength.
