In this book, “32 female artists in Australia share images and stories of their homes, studios, and creative practice. Exploring their diverse practice and a variety of mediums, these formidable artists are united by their strength, passion, vulnerability and uncompromising artistic visions”.

Author and photographer Karina Dias Pires takes readers behind the scenes into the creative spaces of these remarkable women, amplifying their voices through the intersection of their professional and personal lives. The result is an honest, intimate reflection on their career evolutions, motivations and inspirations. Featuring unpublished images and interviews with artists such as Laura Jones, Yvette Coppersmith, Tamara Dean, Lindy Lee, Louise Olsen and Patricia Piccinini, the focus is on empowering women and exploring both the art and the extraordinary women behind it. 

This book is available Australia wide across book stores and museums, as well as on the author’s website
