This was her first attempt at drawing people she said. It received 2nd place in a prison wide completion at Decatur Correctional. No, the irony and heartbreak of a prison hosting a DV Awareness poster contest was not lost on Alisha or us. She was told she received 2nd place because the drawing of her survivor had “too large of breasts.”
We are so incredibly proud of Alisha for continuing her pursuit of art and creative expression. Please visit her amazon wishlist to send more art and drawing instruction books that she’s requested: http://a.co/ewyWkXX
