Joseph Pearson created this body of work to honor the women in his family–he states, “…women whose love, nurture and support made me who I am. These were women who worked hard at home and in the community.”
This desire was precipitated with the celebration of his last living aunt’s 97th birthday, which led him to consider doing something to honor her and the women of her generation, including his mother and her older sister. Through this body of work Pearson presents a few of the many professional women from the local community as examples for younger women and girls as they strive to reach their goals and potential. “It’s a way of giving back something of the nurture and encouragement I received from the women in my life.”
