This is “Grace”. Inspired by a “Trevor Irwin” photograph. Her story, amongst many, has inspired me to do what I can to make a difference. When I began to read about all the people that Trevor has met on his mission through Africa, I felt that this was something I could easily contribute to.
50% of any profit made from this image will be donated to Grace’s village in Nigeria.

    She just about jumps off the page Skye and has that gorgeous burnt orange colour you have used in some of your other portraits.
    Yep, looks every bit as good as you mentioned!
    So kind of you to donate some of the profits from this one. With any luck you might start a trend!
    Big step from a big heart.
