This series, based on digital illustration, is a tribute to the African woman. A tribute to her power, her beauty, her intelligence, her dynamism, her transgressive spirit, her passion for freedom, her rebellious nature, her subtlety, her desire to conquer the world, her attachment to happiness, her enthusiasm, her passion for life and her solidarity. This is a tribute to one of the women with more strength, brilliance, love and beauty I have ever known. A unique woman, an eternal woman. A woman who fought in the anonymity for the freedom and equality of Arabic and African women. Mom, this is my tribute. I love you.
