Using Art To Make A Difference

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Domestic Violence is happening at rate of epidemic proportions around the globe. My mother was murdered in a domestic violence incident therefore I've made it my duty to bring spread awareness by public speaking and educating people about domestic violence because.

This year I've used some of my artwork as a background to highlight some very important facts about Domestic Violence. I encourage every other artist to do the same. Domestic Violence is happening all around us. It could be your mother, your sister, daughter, friend or lady behind the cash register.

Some of my visual factoids can be found throughout the month on both my Instagram and Twitter accounts. We don't have to be big, but if everyone can reach or share with one person, maybe Domestic Violence can begin to exist in the past, not our future.

I used paint and canvas to make a difference through my non profit, Faces Not Forgotten. We paint portraits of children killed by gun violence and donate the portraits to the victim's family. Copies of the portraits are placed on quilts and travel around the USA from gallery to gallery to raise awareness on gun violence. To find out more: www.facesnotforgotten.org.
