We asked friends, families, and supporters of CASA to generously submit any original artwork they thought would make a great greeting card. We were graciously overwhelmed by the amount of support we received from everyone: 70 artists submitted over 100 pieces to the fundraiser. Meet 13 year old Evelyn: one of the 19 artists whose piece was chosen to help benefit victimized children in New Hampshire.
Evelyn is a 13 year old student from Laconia, New Hampshire. She, her mother, and her teacher, were all very excited to hear that her piece was chosen as a greeting card that could possibly benefit some of Evelyn’s fellow peers that need an advocate. Since the age of eight, Evelyn has been creating art whenever a new idea arises. In an effort to learn more, we asked Evelyn a few questions about her and her passions:
CASA: Tell us about yourself! Do you primarily create art or do you have other hobbies/careers?
EVELYN: My hobbies include art, acting, photography, poetry, singing, and bracelet making.
CASA: How long have you been creating art? How were you introduced to this craft?
EVELYN: I’ve done art for five years and I was introduced to art at a very early age by my friends, family, and books.
CASA: Do you have a process you typically use to generate new ideas?
EVELYN: I get an idea and do it right away.
CASA: What are three words you would use to describe your artistic style?
EVELYN: Varied… I like playing with different art styles and mediums.
CASA: Do you have any influencers in the art industry that you particularly enjoy?
EVELYN: My teacher, Marilee Sundius.
Thank you to Evelyn and every other artist who submitted to the CASA Cards for a Cause Fundraiser. This fundraiser is yet another way ordinary people can make extraordinary efforts in combating child abuse and neglect in New Hampshire. There are so many way to help, so thank all of you who have done so.
