The photograph that served as inspiration and foundation for this piece was taken during a tall ship festival on Saaremaa Island in Estonia. I found the image very inspiring because of the quality of the light and the soft pink tones reflecting in the varnished timber. The piece is hand-drawn using a graphic tablet.
This artwork is special to me because I love ships and sailing. But most of all because I see it as an empowering image about women and girls, about big dreams and about leadership.
