"Artists inspire artists. That's why we form art groups, but it is my experience that men talk more than they listen and women listen more than they talk. So, I reached out to other women artists in hopes of
creating a space to develop ideas and encourage critical thinking. Strong Strong Women supports
strong strong women."
– Kris Hodson Moore, Photographer, Collective Founder and Member
"We are artists that engage life - personal, social, ecological, and political ideas. We're inclusive of
people and ideas. We support. We act. We tell stories. We're here." – Louise Russell, Photographer,
"Strong Strong Women was started by the strongest strong woman I know (Kris Hodson Moore), who
invited us into her home to collaborate, support, challenge, and inspire each other. We are each
powerful and capable in our own right, but together we are Strong Strong Women." – Amanda
Dahlgren, Photographer, Collective Member
"Being an artist comes from the deepest part of our humanity, regardless of gender. Our strength as a
group lies in doing what is the most meaningful to us each as a human being. In our communion
together that strength is reinforced as we inspire and celebrate each other."
– Jodie Hulden, Photographer, Collective Member
