Second (and I've already posted about her), is cartoonist, painter, writer and teacher, Lynda Barry. My mom introduced me to Lynda's work when I was about eight years old and I've been an uber-fan ever since! You can read more about Lynda in my previous post, but she served as my creative role model and allowed me to believe that not everything has to be perfect and beautiful in order to be perfect and beautiful. Know what I mean? No? Well, check out some of Lynda's body of art and you'll see.

Who are your heroes? What do you love and who introduced you to it? Who helped you get where you are today? I look forward to hearing about the influential women in your life, whether they are famous faces from the past or from your family today.
