About the artist and work
I created Spice Up Your Line to celebrate female empowerment, individuality and beauty through illustrations. I am inspired by femininity which challenges societies expectation of beauty standards and embraces all forms of what being a powerful, beautiful woman is all about. Different colours, shapes and patterns are used to reflect this individuality and beauty within every design.
Birmingham is known as ‘the city of 1000 trades’ and I completely agree. However, since moving here I have been inspired and overwhelmed by how many powerful women in many different career sectors are pioneering and leading the way for change and the next generation. In a lot of cases, certain male dominated jobs are deemed ‘unfit and unconventional’ for a woman to pursue, however I believe Birmingham is the city that is the exception. From skateboarders to DJ’s, construction workers to security guards and sound engineers to CEO’s, the women of Brum are proving to everyone that we can do anything. This painting includes a few nods to certain professions and is my way of illustrating how much we run this town. Birmingham really is the city of 1000 babes.
