A richly illustrated book, We Are Artists celebrates the life and work of fifteen female artists from around the globe and the distinctive mark they made on art. Presented as a collection of exciting biographical stories, each section reveals how the artist’s unique approach and perspective provided art and society with a new way of seeing things.


We Are Artists places the spotlight on women painters, sculptors, printmakers, illustrators, designers, and craftswomen who created monumental artwork, often against daunting odds. The book includes reproductions of modern and contemporary artwork by Frida Kahlo, Yayoi Kusama, Georgia O’Keeffe, Alma Thomas, and Kenojuak Ashevak, to name a few. Through their personal stories, readers will learn about the art movements each artist worked in and the influence they exerted on both the art world and society as a whole.


This book starts to rewrite art history for the next generation, and will inspire young readers and artists everywhere.

Fabulous book

Purchased for my 4 and 7 year olds as the younger in particular is very into art and adores her book about Yayoi Kusama.
This is a really lovely book. Just enough biographic info to make a great introduction, along with photos of some of each artist’s work. Important life events aren’t sugar-coated or sanitised, but are handled in a manner appropriate for children. We read an artist a night, as each chapter is about the right length. Very nice illustrations too.
As a result of this book my daughter now adores Kenojuak Ashevak. It was amazing to watch her discover art that speaks to her. (Kenojuak’s picture gets an excited equal and a kiss every time we pass it!)

Also very happy to support make+wonder with this purchase as it’s a fabulous shop and resource for inspiration!
