Introducing Let's Make Art Matter

 
Hello friends,
 
I want to start off by saying I think you are amazing, brave, wonderful people who are still chasing down their creativity and willing to try something new. And I love you for that.
 
I have learned through this last year that life is hard. And I don’t necessarily mean mine, I mean everybody’s. I knew this one particular family that had a very rough year—from cancer to suicide to miscarriages to divorce. And every time something horrible happened I wanted to say something, anything, that could comfort them, but who even knows what to say in those situations? So instead of saying, I painted. Just so they knew that I was thinking about them, just so they knew they were loved. It was through these experiences that I realized that art can be so much more than fun illustrations that I can sell on etsy. Art can help bring people together, spread love, and sometimes heal. I want everybody to know that.
 
So every month in our subscription box I am including a little postcard. A postcard for someone who needs a little extra love or thought. But I need your help. While I would love to send these postcards to people I personally know, I want this to reach beyond my grasp, and that is where you come in. As you go about your day, think of someone who might need this. It can be anybody, a sweet neighbor that you appreciate, someone who is lonely, or down, or sad. Send me their information and we can see if we can brighten their day, even just for a little bit. Because we are all in this together.
