Description

 

“To all the young girls in care and women in corrections, never give up hope. I was once where you are. Life gets better. Be blessed.”
— Jackie Traverse

The beautiful and intricate works of art within depict images of strength, resilience and empowerment. With each image, the artist explains the symbolism and meaning represented. The first of its kind, Sacred Feminine is intended to heal and educate readers and colourers of all ages.
