Image Statement: We can be bombarded with the fantasy of Princesses in childhood. "When We Were Princesses" is based on all the hours young girls can spend drawing princesses or women we thought we were supposed to be. The delicate ink drawings flirt with visibility by their placement on densely painted patterns.
