Malala Yousafzai by Sarah Hillman – Metal Print – Refugee Portrait Collection
$42.00 – $225.50
My portraits are a celebration of people. Their lives, their achievements, their unique humanity – these are the things I try to capture using different styles and colors and mediums. I love drawing people’s faces. Each face tells a story about the life that person has lived, the challenges they’ve overcome, and the story they’re a part of. There’s something very enjoyable, and very challenging, in trying to tell someone’s story without words.
In partnering with Umoja House on this one year portrait series, I get to use art to tell the stories of refugees who’ve overcome enormous obstacles in their lives, and gone on to use their skills and talents to make the world a better place for others. I love what Charla is doing here in Lansing, providing a safe space for people whose stories have brought them to Lansing, while they seek refuge, pursue education, or work to find stability in life. As an immigrant myself, I love how diverse and multicultural Lansing is, and I’m grateful to be a part of any effort celebrating and pursuing that aspect of our city.
