Monday Mural - Woman

Another mural I found when on holidays in Portugal in August/September 2017.
Painted around the corner from a pastry shop in the suburb of Torre, Cascais, (Portugal) by Jacqueline de Montaigne, a Anglo/Portuguese visual artist and human rights activist.

Jacqueline was born in Lisbon, raised in Saudi Arabia, Scotland and East Asia, returning to live in Portugal at the age of 20.
