Description of Jane Goodall – Portrait Study

Adapted from a reference photo of conservationist Jane Goodall by Diana Quintela, with permission, this artwork was a donation to the annual auction held by Studio Art Quilt Associates. It was a study for the larger work, Memories of Gombe, that followed. The sinamay sections behind her replicate the outline of Gombe National Park, where she established a sanctuary for chimpanzees.
