My prayer is that this kind of collaboration, intentional creativity paired with positive media and educational programs, will further the revolution toward honor and dignity for women and girls, and indeed, all people. Palm of Her Hand leads with a focus on women’s work because we know that when a mother honors herself, her children are more likely to honor her, as well as themselves, others, and the whole planet.
for the love she felt
the love she gave away
and the love she kept

I have been making art for 15 years now. There is a substance behind what I am doing – my mission. My actual inspiration. My big dream.
