I’m participating in a project called the Freedom 58 Project. This organization sets out to fight slavery and human oppression through education, advocacy, and action. There are 30 million slaves in the world. 2 million women and children are trafficked annually. I am happy to be part of an exhibit called the Faces of Freedom. This exhibit shines the light on this growing criminal enterprise and draws awareness to it. As a participating artist, I was given the portrait of someone who was saved from trafficking by one of the partner organizations. I painted this young girl trying to bring a light into her face to show the hope for the future. This will be a touring exhibit, starting at Crystal Bridges Art Museum in Bentonville, Arkansas in April. I’m excited to be part of something so good.
I am a Kansas City based artist. I love to paint, inspire, hike, trail run, and be Supermom.
