2020 PANDEMIC INSPIRED PROJECTS
Climb Your Mountain 29
In April at the beginning of the Covid 19 pandemic, while craving a challenge and way to give back, Climb Your Mountain 29 was born. Inspired by fundraising in my sister, Debbie Gregg’s memory (10/14/1964-8/19/2012), the event kicked off in July and raised over $20,000 for Brain Cancer Research at Upstate Cancer Center. https://www.climbyourmountain29.com/
Gift of Tennis
On November 10th, Gift of Tennis, written by tennis enthusiast and coach Valerie Clarke became available on Amazon! I both illustrated and designed the book geared toward adults who want to learn to play tennis. The book is filled with whimsical drawings and doodles and provides a plethora of tennis, life lessons and anecdotes. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE BOOK!
The Left & Right-Handed Creativity Project
Many years ago,I started drawing left-handed after a tennis shoulder and hand injury. In 2019, I spent a year exploring drawing and painting using both hands and researching the functions of the left and right sides of the brain relating to creativity. In 2020, I continued a practice that incorporates a left-handed warm up and doing a simple illustration at least five times per week.
Through December 31, 2020, 100% of my painting and drawing art sales will be donated to Caz Cares and to my sister’s Brain Cancer Research Fund.
