Simone Biles is the most decorated American gymnast in history with a total medal count of thirty-two Olympic and World Championship medals. She is also the first American woman to win seven national all-around titles and first female gymnast to earn three consecutive World All-Around titles. She is a three-time recipient of the Laureus World Sports Award for Sportswoman of the Year and has received widespread recognition, including TIME 100 Most Influential, Forbes 30 Under 30, Ebony Power 100, People Women Changing the World, USA Today 100 Women of the Century, and two-time Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year, among others.
“The word that comes to mind when I think of Simone Biles is powerful. She possesses strength and power that hadn’t been seen in gymnastics before and I wanted to capture that in action. A game changer and record breaker. This was the second piece I painted for the series and choosing Simone was a foregone conclusion because few athletes have dominated their sport the way she has. She also advocates for survivors and mental health awareness which I believe are both important causes.”
