Artist Statement

"I wanted to highlight one of the most underappreciated groups of workers, the domestic housekeeper. Even though they are frequently entrusted with some of the most important parts of their employers' lives (children, home), they are subject to a great deal of abuse, mistreatment, and poor pay with little oversight from outside the home they work for. The majority of these workers are women of color and often immigrants, of whom 23% are paid less than minimum wage, no paid leave, and are excluded from many labor and employment laws. We should recognize them, most especially as people who should not be invisible or ignored." - Daisy Patton

An artist/freelancer located in Boulder, Colorado, Daisy has lived all across America, such as California, Oklahoma, and Massachusetts. Her varied work focuses on history, memory, and social mythology, as well as playful illustration.

About We Can Do It!

We Can Do It! is a collection of designs inspired by the iconic “We Can Do It” poster of the 1940's to celebrate modern-day workers (women and men alike) who keep the country running and rarely receive the recognition they deserve. Proceeds support Ultraviolet, a powerful and rapidly growing community of people from all walks of life mobilized to fight sexism and expand women's rights.
