“Elle” is dedicated to women, especially to my mother and my daughter and my dear friends. Women are strong, capable, generous, resilient, graceful, elegant, loving, intelligent, poised, humorous and talented. The generosity of women is symbolized by the tray.
With each purchase of "Elle" the selling gallery and I collaborate to donate 10 percent of the sales price to The Foundation for International Community Assistance, FINCA, which provides micro-loans ($50-$1000) to the world's poorest mothers. A micro-loan is not charity, but rather an investment in the belief that the best way to help children is to increase their mother's capacity to care for them. The recipients of FINCA micro-loans invest their loan in small businesses thus raising their household income and improving their standard of living.
Donations to FINCA are also made with the sculptures “HOPE”, “Overcome”, “Grace” and “One on One”. Every purchase of these sculptures is an investment in a women and her children.
