Artist that Empowers and Celebrates Women and Diversity through her Art

Christi Brittain has always been interested in art since she was a young girl. Her first exposure and lesson was at a summer camp when she was around eight years old. She watched a camp counselor draw a portrait of a woman and was really intrigued.  She started drawing black and white images all the way through high school and then on to college.

Seven years ago Christi decided to try painting. Other than taking an art class in high school and a pottery class in college, she had never taken a painting class.  ​Drawing came much easier for her than painting in the beginning. It took some time for her to be able to paint what she was actually envisioning in her mind. As with anything, through time and trial and error, her painting continued to improve. Her painting has now become as natural as her drawing skills.

With the support and encouragement of her mother, husband and friends, Christi finally decided to move forward to share her art with others and formed her business called-‘Freckles N Toes’.

In the interview, Christi talks about self-care, advocacy & empowerment, lessons learned and about her art and process.

Let’s Peace Together Our World~Itah Banda

An American woman who is singing with a Muslim man about how we are all different, and that’s OK.   America is supposed to be about diversity and for everyone to have the right to seek out happiness, however that may be, whether we entirely agree or not. Also this should be able to happen without the fear of being harassed, bullied, and discriminated against. This is what America is supposed to be about.

Let’s try to remember we are also all much more the same and want the same things. Here is a famous musician and other musicians joining efforts in their own way of recognizing how the holidays, spirit of Christmas, or whatever similar you may celebrate abroad or right here in America, can share the same message of hope and peace. This video clip (below) shows the various bells that are rung in recognition and promoting of peace across the world.
