Inspired by Women Leaders During Lockdown Ramona Pintea is Empowering Women with her Urban Queen Art
EMPOWERING WOMEN THROUGH ART
Ramona Pintea is a woman on a mission – to empower women through art. As a self-taught artist with accolades from gallery owners and art collectors, she has received her greatest accolades during lockdown, from women around the world.
Inspired by an article in Forbes magazine about how seven powerful women leaders shone through the Covid-19 crisis she created a stunning series of paintings recognising every woman’s sovereignty.
The #UrbanQueen was born.
Ramona said: “Along with these seven ladies and other brave and determinate known figures, my inspiration is every woman who is a leader but is living in anonymity. Through my paintings, I want to bring every woman to spotlight who runs her household, raises her children, puts up with her boss, looks after her health, and shows strength and courage in her everyday life.”
Ramona shared her thoughts, her process, and her paintings online and was blown away by the response from women around the globe. Women who felt uplifted and inspired by her art.
Two #UrbanQueen series were sold out within hours of announcement and a NEW SERIES is ready to launch for Thanksgiving November 26th.
Ramona continues: “All of us need to be reminded of our inner royalty from time to time. Little slips along the way, small bumps of negativity, personal vulnerability and the crown can tilt
“Yet the ability to stand up, shake off, find inner strength and put the crown back to its rightful place is what makes us Queens. The ability to reincarnate this crown, to make it even more valuable and meaningful. And moreover, the ability to rock it harder than before, shinier than ever – purposeful as can be.”
Ramona asks her followers to name her finished paintings and titles such as ‘I was born ready’, ‘My crown my rule’, ‘Every day a queen’, ‘I’ve got this’, ‘All I need is my crown’, ‘Don’t f*** with me’ and ‘Whispering goddess’ give an insight into the many facets of the inner queen living inside every woman who responds.
