I am releasing limited edition A4 prints of 6 of the ‘Misfit Women’ paintings that I created for Women’s History Month, including this painting of Dame Judi Dench.
Who is Judi Dench?
As a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Judi took on EVERY SINGLE leading female role Shakespeare had to offer (and went on to win an Oscar for her role in Shakespeare in Love, which has a nice symmetry to it). Oh, and you know that Oscar I just mentioned? That was with just 8 MINUTES OF SCREENTIME. The woman is a legend.⠀
And one last fun fact that makes me love her all the more?
She quite famously doesn’t read parts before accepting them, instead choosing to rely on the thoughts of her friends and colleagues to help her make a decision. A big lesson in trust, right?
