We asked Ashley to tell us about her postcard.
“My name is Ashley Shaffer. I am a deaf artist. Art is my passion. Art is a huge part of my life as I am into being creative, decoration, fashion, and much more! It’s all about beautiful art.
I think that expressing yourself through art is like putting a seed in the ground to grow – beautiful and unstoppable.
I created this artwork with the title “Love” because love is something we can’t live without. It is one of the most beautiful parts of our lives. The “I love you” symbol in sign language is beautiful!
I also create art to show my support toward disabled people and to encourage people to look more at positive side of their lives. I hope they look at this artwork and feel inspired. I hope it brightens their day and makes their lives colourful, not dull. However, not only disabled people but everyone. Everyone is human, we are not that different at all.”
