Recently a collage artist and FB friend, Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson, has been posting about her best friend from childhood having suffered paralysis from the shoulders down as a result of a car accident. The world of Cherie Stannard and her family has been turned upside down since September 30, 2010. In such a case, what's an artist to do? Cry? Of course. Then Elizabeth decided to try to help.
A book, called Art with Heart, has been created with the profits ($12 of each book) going to Cherie's family for her round-the-clock care. The wonderful art of about 50 different artists, from around the country, was donated for use in the book. You can take a look at it here:
Yep, I'm in the book and am honored to be a small part in this effort. The peacock on the opening spread was created by Elizabeth.
This would be a great gift for an artist or the person on your list that has everything. You must order soon to get it by Christmas. If you're not in a holiday rush, this book will be available after Christmas too.
Thanks for looking.
