Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
I am an artist. My work features women and children survivors of war. I believe by painting these strong amazing women, I can tell their stories to others and thus bring attention, respect and understanding to what they have endured and overcome.

My Passions:
art, women's rights, human rights, peace and acceptance

Hi Lisa,

Welcome to PulseWire. We are thrilled to have you as a new member in our thriving community of women who are lifting their voices in the name of empowerment and connecting across borders to make positive change for women everywhere!

I am really intrigued by the description of your art... what a beautiful way to combine your passions. Do you have a website?
I encourage you to use your journal as a place to further introduce yourself, your work and your passions to the PulseWire community. Think of your journal as a blog, where you can speak your mind and reach an audience of over 3000 women and supporters of women's initiatives. Check out what others are writing about in Voices Rising. I think that you will find PulseWire to be an exciting place to garner support, make connections and share your story!

Warm regards,
