    Portraits of Courage

    Julia Terwilliger

    In Her Own Words:

    "As an artist, I am committed to including women in our history through my paintings. I view my work as inclusive in its purpose, a way of filling the gaps, I strive to bring a more realistic recognition of the capabilities and potential of human beings regardless of genderand an understanding and appreciation of women's positive contributions to society... These are real women, who had real lives, and an incredible amount of heart and courage .... I have grown extremely loyal to this project, and committed to telling their story in the most powerful and meaningful way possible..."
