To anyone feeling alone and scared in the world today…

This is my contribution to the movement of fellow artists in a message to people everywhere. We are experiencing fear and concern in so many places, from too much negative and uninformed information, and a message of support is needed.

It is my intention to be a voice for truth, love and light in the world.

Therefore, I am sharing this with anyone who needs support, wants to share a positive message, and stand up for anyone feeling scared.

Artists for Love

Artists for Love


From Flora Bowley’s FB page: “In an effort to foster more love and compassion in the world, a group of my artist friends have created posters expressing our solidarity with those feeling scared and marginalized right now. This project is not intended to create further divide, but rather to build bridges of kindness and inclusivity.

Find all the free, downloadable art by Kelly Rae Roberts, Lynzee Lynx Malsin, Alisa Burke, Pixie Lighthorse, Jennifer Mercede, Alena Hennessy, Simone Star, and Orly Avineri, and read more about what it means to me to “stand with” others right now over on my blog.

If you feel inspired to join the Artists For Love movement, please download, print, and hang these posters in your community, share them digitally, or create your own versions to share. Use the #artistsforlove hashtag so we can watch this movement of love ripple far and wide!

I also encourage you to read Kelly Rae’s moving thoughts about this project on her blog: http://www.kellyraeroberts.com/artistsforlove/

“This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no place for despair, no time for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. This is how civilizations heal.” – Toni Morrison

With love. 💛
