Welcome to my project "Nguvu" (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 will be exhibited in Gettysburg, PA, at the Gunnar Gallery, in August 2010. 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. I will post some WIP (works-in-progress) as well as the final portrait.
