When I first conceptualized this shop, I knew there had to be a component of giving back to the broader community. Since my art is medically inspired, and being in healthcare myself, I will be donating a portion of all sales to healthcare related charities doing medical research, providing advocacy, medical relief, healthcare and/or humanitarian aid. Thank you for not only supporting me, but also for supporting the health of the local and global community.
