The Art world has been dominated by men for centuries. Many talented female artists have have broken through the so called accepted roles of who an artist should be. Let's add notable and often overlooked female artists to this project.

Often these women were apprentices to masters and did much of their work for the known or commissioned artist of their time without due credit.

Collaborators are welcomed. All media of art and genres of art from traditional,classical; illustrator,drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, digital and even crafting, beadwork, yarn, and textile artists should be included in this project.

This project is to not only recognize well known or famous female artists but to recognize those who were not necessarily famous but were "Artists ". Artists need to create whether they receive recognition or not.

To create is ingrained in them.
