female artist

Margaret Kilgallen says she’s glad she could make girls feel free and empowered to create art. she appreciates imperfection as being beautiful. she died at such an early age of 33 from breast cancer, but her art still survives as a tribute to creativity and effort. even though she received much acclaim and wide approval from the art world, and had successful commissioned gallery exhibitions, she was truly a graffiti artist. she continued tagging street walls and freight trains under her tag name ‘meta’.
she was a mother (died three weeks after giving birth), a wife (to graffiti artist barry mcgee ‘twist’), artist, surfer, banjo player, tagger, librarian, bookbinder, biker,,,a woman, a beautiful loser

alot of people seem to have a difficult time naming famous female artists…
