The Riley Youngsters’s Basis just lately collaborated with Our Tradition of Good to have a good time and sponsor the creativity of the youngsters on the Riley Hospital for Youngsters at Indiana College Well being. The ensuing microfiber cloths spotlight the creativity of 9 baby artists with ties to Riley. On this Riley blog series, we’ll burrow deeper into every artist’s story and the way they’re impressed to create paintings. Right here is Sophie Collier’s story:
When Sophie was born with a coronary heart defect, docs and nurses thought that they had a battle forward of them. However then, the four-pound-newborn Sophie developed an immune illness referred to as DiGeorge Syndrome, making it laborious for her little physique to make antibodies to combat off illness and illness. Her mother explains that “Sophie was born with a coronary heart that’s too small for her, so, docs should surgically enlarge her coronary heart as she grows.” Though little Sophie continues to combat her well being battles, she brings magic into the world of those that meet her.
After seeing Sophie’s artwork, you’ll understand in a short time the massive shops of uncooked expertise held inside her. The brilliant colours and a number of textures Sophie introduced into her artwork for the TCC microfiber cloths is spectacular. “We’re all golden sunflowers inside”, an Allen Ginsberg quote, stands white in opposition to a black background. In the meantime, beneath the considerate quote, stands a backyard of dazzlingly vibrant flowers and greens. Even the filth holding the flowers in place incorporates patterns and textures. This artwork is just a feast for the eyes.
