The name of my project is "Nguvu" which is Swahili for strength. Inspired by the women in Kristof and WuDunn's book "Half the Sky", I set out to use my art for good. With the gracious permission of many wonderful photographers, I've used their photos of women who faced obstacles of all kinds as my reference. These portraits are for sale and I will donate 50% of the sale price to the organization associated with each photographer. The photographer's name and her organization can be found in the information connected with each portrait. Other than donating pieces to auctions for various charities, this is my do-good-with-art project. Please read the descriptions and buy something. Thank you.
