Artist Statement

Madonna is less than a year older than me. I grew up listening to her music, dancing to her songs, watching her in movies, and admiring her strength. This art quilt is meant to reflect Madonna’s beauty and confidence.

Woman’s Groundbreaking Accomplishment

Madonna has sold more than 300 million records world-wide and is recognized as the best-selling female recording artist of all time by Guinness World Records. She was ranked at number one on VH1’s list of 100 Greatest Women in Music and number two (behind only The Beatles) on Billboard’s list of Greatest Hot 100 Artists of All Time.
