In 2016 my husband talked me into going to Uganda to meet the two boys we sponsor through Compassion International. After returning from that trip I had so many emotions I needed to process. I also felt compelled to support Compassion International in a deeper way. The images from our trip spoke to me and I felt they could also speak to others as paintings, so I began a series of thirteen portraits featuring children we met while in Uganda. That series is used to spread awareness of the wonderful work Compassion is doing in Uganda and throughout the world to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name. All money from the sale of these paintings goes directly to Compassion International's "Greatest Need" fund.
