While I thumbed through the Internet the other day, the words "100 Inspiring Women" caught my eye. I didn't pause to investigate. You know how one thing will lead you astray quickly on the Internet. But I couldn't stop thinking about that phrase. Who are the women who inspire you?

For me, there are plenty of well-known women: Eleanor Roosevelt, the social worker Dorothy Dix, the designers Edith Head and Vera, Audrey Hepburn, and the marathon runner, Joan Benoit Samuelson to name a few. But there also people I've met who have inspired me. One of those women is Deborah Rydell Hansen, a fellow artist and friend, who creates amazing pieces on her iPad. Using the Procreate app, she assembles photos of flower petals and turns them into beautiful dresses. Here are just two to tempt you. They are part of her collection she calls, Corola de la Moda.

Deborah, like many artists, bursts with ideas. She designs clothing, makes pillows with her designs on the covers, she creates tea towels with her digital paintings for motifs, and paints on glassware, which has sold at the Museum Shop at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. A very talented woman and an inspiring person too!
