Stacey by Sarah Matthews - SOLD

After Stacey Abrams lost her Gubernatorial election in Georgia in 2018, she made it her mission to make sure what happened to her would not happen to anyone else. She was instrumental in turning Georgia blue during the 2020 Presidential Election. I made this flag book to celebrate Stacey Abram's accomplishments. She was and is an unseen force and is an inspiration to me.

I printed her portrait on multiple pages and cut them out into flags to show the movement of the force she is generating. I am looking forward to seeing what she will do in the future.
