I am honored to be working on a really cool project this month. This is my first year as a contributing artist to the Kansas City Art for Arthritis benefit. Here's how it works: A local child, who is affected by arthritis, is paired up with an artist. Together, they work on an art project that will be part of a auction to benefit the Arthritis Foundation. I am working with Leigha on a metal sculpture. I will unveil the piece when we are finished. Needless the say, it will be a very special piece created by a very special girl. For more information on the Western Missouri/Greater Kansas City chapter, go here.
