the digital giraffe - Brazen Hussy!

!Brazen Hussy

Several years ago two Brazen Hussies discussed the idea of promoting the work of female artists who were bold, unafraid, and challenged male norms. Ruth Waters, Founder and Executive Director of the Peninsula Museum of Art in Burlingame, CA, and Corinne Whitaker, CEO and Chief Imagineer of the Digital Giraffe Empire, finally decided to devote a special section on giraffe.com to these extraordinary artists.
