    "My work in the past few years has dealt with portraying the heroic aspect of woman-heroic both in scale and deed. For this I have often used the image of Wonder Woman as I remember her from childhood comics, with her headband crown and arm raised in rescue. When the suggestion came to express my artistic concerns using the statue of liberty as focus, I was struck with how that powerful figure paralleled the spirit of my previous work. In this print I tried to communicate the sense of strength and courage I always Feel I see Ms. liberty and create the mood of celebration which the country feels about her renewal."
