Collage Mixed Media 8.5 by 11 Breaking Free

Look carefully at this piece. What do you see? Can you see the butterfly, fluttering tentatively beneath shadows of her past, edging ever closer to breaking free of a life that has kept her prisoner? Can you help free her? Yes. We all can.

Created out of everything from paper pieces to acrylic paint, mod podge, gesso, and lots of Mixed Media in between, this original work of art measures 8.5 by 11, and comes complete in frame, ready to hang or give as a gift.

The proceeds from this sale will go directly to Breaking Free, an organization devoted to helping sexually exploited women and girls "break free" of the oppressive, abusive, and down-right horrible prison that is prostitution. Based in Saint Paul, MN, this fantastic, non for profit organization began in 1995 by Vednita Carter. To learn more about Breaking Free, please visit their site here: http://www.breakingfree.net

Suziblu is a wonderful artist that I have personally followed for years is stepping up to the plate, donating her time and services as a teacher, mentor, and friend to these women and girls by helping them escape through the healing and empowering force that is art. She is looking for any help as far as art journals, supplies, etc. which will enable these females to stop looking at themselves as things to be bought and used, and to begin to know themselves as artists, as beautiful women, as FREE. Learn more about what she's doing to help here: http://suziblu.typepad.com/a_lovely_dream/2012/08/petite-acts-of-love.html

Thank you!
