During these incredibly trying and unfortunate times for our country many people have been searching for ways to get involved in their community in order to spread hope, demonstrate commitment, and circulate love. I have chosen to combine my passion for art and my eagerness to help those affected during this pandemic to spread happiness through my newest collection, Wanderlust. Wanderlust is a collective of dynamic and unique artists who aim to inspire and affect change with art as a vehicle in building community, understanding, and awareness. All Wanderlust's profits will go to Nourish Bridgeport, a non-profit organization that strives to better the lives of those in need in Bridgeport, especially in this current climate. Nourish Bridgeport serves the community suppers weekly, stocks the local food pantry and works to help their neighbors who are homeless, food insecure and struggling to build better lives. To me, there is no better way to enact change than through the undeniable power and intensity of art. Together we can strive to not only move and empower one another but to change the lives of those most vulnerable during this pandemic. I hope to evoke happiness during these hard and unsettling days.
