Prior to the last 20 years as a full time artist I was as a clinical social worker, working in various non-profits in administrative positions. My direct experiences with children and communities furthered a deep appreciation for humanitarian causes and environmental conservation. I hope you will join me in supporting some of my favorites:

Award-winning American contemporary painter, photographer and mixed media artist Andrea Bonfils has created a unique “Encaustic” work of art by taking an original photograph taken by Unite Founder & Director Anne Wells and adding to it melted beeswax, resin and other natural materials.
