Spotlight on . . .Gilbert artist Helen Thomas Robson won the People's Choice Award at the Constitution Week celebration in Gilbert last week for her fine art photo illustration entitled "Remember," which depicts Christ comforting two children dressed in their daddy's army fatigues as they sit at his grave. It's part of a collection of 28 photo illustrations entitled "Captured Miracles" that she created to help children's foundations in their fund raising efforts.
HER REACTION "I was so excited to hear that 'Remember' won the People's Choice Award at one of the largest Constitution celebrations in the nation. I really want to touch and inspire others with what I create. Winning the People's Choice tells me that I am heading in the right direction."
HER GOAL "I created this collection because I wanted to do something with my talents that would help children while touching and inspiring others to make a difference."
SEE HER WORK Between 6:30-9:30 p.m. Saturday Sept 26th, 2009 at The Rockin' R Ranch, 6136 E Baseline Rd, in Mesa. The exhibit is an open-house event for the whole family. For more information on the event and collection, go to www.capturedmiracles.org. Her next exhibit is in Utah.
