What We Protect

Michelle Dinh

I created What We Protect to honor all of the women in healthcare and to show what else they protect outside of their line of work. My intention is to humanize essential workers, to celebrate them and to bring attention to their sacrifices.

My work is driven by color and all things whimsical. During the time of COVID-19, my work has shifted to focusing on themes of empowerment and cultural identity.
