Submission deadline for this month is...
Violet King
Elsie Hawkes /  Thu, 17 Feb 2022

I chose to honor Violet King because she was a brave and honest person and the first black female Canadian lawyer. In my art, she is wearing a dress with some flowers native to Canada such as purple periwinkle and blue flag iris. The pattern in the background is made up of gavel because she is a lawyer and crowns because her last name is King. I chose to put her in Alex Colville's "To Prince Edward Island" because it is an iconic Canadian artwork and it focuses on the person in the painting so the focus is on Violet King.
