Hey guys, I just wanted to switch it up a bit and share pics with you all from a recent trip (that I was very lucky to take!).
I want to give a huge thanks to The Picture Book Project, whom I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Ho, Ghana with this summer. It was a true honor to represent the artists who donated their time and their art to the ‘Art Blocks for Ghana’ auction and PBP’s coloring book. Seeing first hand the extraordinary contributions everyone made was humbling. The impact is evident and the kids benefiting from all of it are so appreciative. They’re filled with endless amounts of energy, curiosity, excitement, and a desire to learn and absorb. Not to mention loads of creativity... all while growing up in an environment that can be very challenging. Their perseverance to keep moving forward is contagious and I can’t express how humble and proud I was to be a part of it all.
