***In Honor of the Art For Earth Event***
When I was invited by Tamara Laporte to be a part of this event, I was so honored and excited to help support our earth and the climate change that is damaging her. I’m not a person you will see on the corner protesting or standing in front of politicians demanding change. But ask me to contribute with my art…and I’m there!
