Relief print (wood cut) on Arnhem paper, 2016
Alice Riggs Hunt was a first wave feminist from New York who dedicated her life to journalism, activism and the fight for women's suffrage. 
After having the opportunity to transcribe one of Alice’s journal entries, Carvalho was motivated to learn more about the activist’s life. Drawing inspiration from artifacts in Special Collections & Archives at the University of Waterloo, including a passport photo, Riggs’s signature, and a “Votes for Women” sash worn by the suffragette, Carvalho created this set of three original prints.
