Dinah by Isabella Brown

Artist’s Statement: This illustration is based off of The Red Tent by Anita Diamant, one of my favorite books about Jewish womanhood. The story, which is loosely based around characters and events in the Bible, revolves around a young woman, Dinah, which is why I made her the focal point of the drawing. It tells her story as well as the stories of her mothers who I depicted as statues around her. I chose to use colored pencils as my medium so I could include as much detail as possible.
