Heroes, Heroines & Heroics 2021

I am excited to be part of the Flagler County Art League’s juried exhibit, entitled “Heroes, Heroines, and Heroics”  The virtual online show starts April, 17 2021 and runs through June 12, 2021.  My submission, called Sea Shepherdess, is a portrait of Captain Pia Klemp.  She followed the human law of the sea and rescued many hundreds of immigrants drowning in unseaworthy vessels in the Mediterranean Sea.  She now awaits trial in Italy for violating their immigration laws.  Her story resonated with me and I felt compelled to make her portrait.  I want to thank Judge Robert Leedy for selecting my artwork.  You can see “Sea Shepherdess”, along with all the other artwork here.
