Elsa Senner is a fine artist and illustrator who works primarily in mediums that travel easily with her on a daily basis – teeny notebooks, pens, watercolors, and other assorted drawing methods. Her work's aesthetic shifts frequently between symbol based abstractions and close observation. Sharing her work with others is one of the driving forces behind her art practice.
I’m happy to donate my art and participate in this collaboration that’s true purpose is to help others.
Courtney Parsons is a self-taught artist from New Hampshire, where she has lived and worked all of her life (so far.) She spends most of her time drawing, reading and working on various projects. Although she enjoys experimenting with different mediums and styles, her favorite things to create are pen and ink mandala drawings. She has found her passion in creating detailed mandala and floral style illustrations and really enjoys trying to incorporate those types of designs in different and unique ways.
Courtney is incredibly proud to be able to donate her art to this special project, as her art has helped her heal in so many significant ways at different points in her life. She would be honored to know that it could help someone else too, even if it’s even if it’s just in a small way. You can view much of her work and watch her continue to grow as an artist: at instagram.com/art_bycmp
Nandana (Nan) Prasad
Nandana (Nan) Prasad has lived in Waterloo and Guelph, Ontario most of her life. Her career in international development started at an early age and, whenever she had spare time, she would ‘doodle’ while overseas. Her father and mother recognized her ‘doodles’ as therapy when she was trying to cope with being the youngest of nine children in a very fast-paced home environment. Art (sculpting, music and drawing) became her ‘down’ time and then, in 1993 evolved into an income generating hobby. Her past donations of art to support health priorities include Missionaries of Charity (India), HIV/AIDS Committee of Guelph (Ontario, Canada) and St. John Bosco Boys’ Home (Jamaica, W.I.) She currently resides in Iqaluit, Nunavut where she is engaged in studying Inuit tattoos and symbols.
I am donating because I believe in culturally compelling therapy that encourages people to learn about other cultures and their meaningful iconography.
