As a child I learned that my drawings would make people smile. This encouraged me to draw even more and soon I realized that there is great power in sharing ones art.
This realization led to an idea that perhaps I could also use my love for painting to make a contributions to better the life of others.
I am now committed to help as many charitable organizations as possible by donating 10% of each sale made through this site . I donate in a couple of ways:
- Monetary Donations
- Gift Certificate Donation
- Art Work Donation
If you represent a charity, I welcome your donation requests for portrait gift certificates to use at your auction events.
