This is a sneak peek at the graphic I have digitally drawn for the theme 'silver linings for girls' which I will apply to prints or note cards. It features a young girl with long flowing hair floating though the clouds – totally free and purposeful. Inspired by my 10 year old niece, Mia, I've watched her grow into a bright, confident girl – she's played basketball, she dances ballet, tap and jazz, she plays violin, she's inquisitive and she's creative – all the wonderful benefits of an educated life in the western world. It is my hope that all young girls around the globe have the same opportunities as Mia - freedom, education, empowerment, and a safe, happy future.
