This painting was inspired by an all women’s backpacking course in the Pacific Northwest. The outdoor industry is male-dominated, so females are a minority and often feel uncomfortable because of it. All women’s trips give women a sense of emotional and physical safety, let them step outside of gender roles and stereotypes, create a positive learning environment for both beginners and experts, and help them make connections with other like-minded women. On my all women’s course, I met six incredible women and decided to become a professional artist.
