Women’s Wisdom Project

Women’s Wisdom Project is a collection of portraits and profiles that I started in 2018. The goal was the showcase the wisdom of inspiring, insightful women by making 100 papercut portraits. Each portrait is hand cut from a single piece of paper.

You can see each illustration here, the archives of some of the profiles here, and I also post about the project on my Instagram feed.

There are a few of the pieces available as prints here, with 50% of the proceeds donated to a variety of nonprofits. If you are interested in buying an original, please send an email to info[at]annabrones[dot]com.
