The month of August celebrates Women's Equality Day, an historical acknowledgment of the 19th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, allowing American white women the right to vote, granting them essentially equal say about community, career and personal health.  Jill Banks worked for a marketing communications company for 16 years before changing careers and becoming a painter.

Fumiyo Yoshikawa

Fumiyo Yoshikawa
I paint my daughter, Madoka, and her dreams. Madoka means “circle,” a Japanese metaphor for peace, happiness, wholeness, and inclusiveness. When I gave birth, I named my daughter Madoka, wishing her to be generous and peaceful like the sun, calm and gentle like the moon.
