Throughout my life, I have been accused of being too sensitive and too emotional. I've been told “let's talk about something more positive” or had someone change the subject when I bring up a social justice issue. However, to me ignoring these issues, repressing my feelings, or telling others their feelings are not valid is not an option.
I strive to promote and help establish a communal mindset of empathy and present an easy opportunity to provide direct relief with each artwork. 20% of every price is redistributed to specific social impact groups and artwork images themselves can spread awareness. I want people to understand that emotions are not a weakness and how easy it can be to take direct action in our communities.
