Lee Jaworek ART NEWS!
Debi's son Lee Jaworek has some exciting news too! "Sunflower," one of Lee's paintings, was recently shown on CBS Sunday Morning! Lee is a young artist with autism who calls his art "Artism." Now Lee has been selected by an award-winning, growing social enterprise called Zenaviv (a company providing income and opportunity to artists with autism) to have his artwork made into products and wall art. Companies buy them for their events, office décor and corporate giving needs. They are also available for anyone to buy on Zenaviv's website, www.Zenaviv.com. As you will see, Lee's photo is on the home page of the website! :) All artists, including Lee, get over 50% of the profits from each sale, so that they/their caretakers can invest in their future care and quality of life, without jeopardizing any of the supports they currently have in place (such as Lee's aides). For more info on Lee, go to www.LeeJaworek.com.
Hope to see you at one of Debi's shows!
