I Am Spirit

by: Julia E. Armstrong, Montgomery, Alabama

When we feel love and kindness towards others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and PEACE.

quote by: His Holiness The Dalai Lama,

Artist Statement

As a female I’ve been judged on how I look, my shape, my race, my age, and on what a female should or shouldn’t do. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could be loved just as we are – and for who we are – seen beyond age, race, gender and shape? My artwork and poem are pleas to the world to look beyond and into the soul.
