Even though the World Lupus Day has passed already ( it was on May 10th ) I want to raise awareness of Lupus which is a collection of autoimmune diseases in which the human system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissues. This can affect many different body systems including joints, kidneys, skin, blood cells, heart and lungs ( source Wikipedia ).
My designer friend Dawn Clarkson/Nice and Fancy initiated the idea to create beautiful butterfly art to raise awareness of the disease.
The butterfly is universally accepted as the symbol which represents Lupus.
Dawn had three showcases over on her blog on Monday with art from all over the world and of all ages…3-80 years !
In the past I never made it but I was determined to take part in her showcase this year.
Here you can see my butterfly pattern.
Please check out the Nice and Fancy blog to see all butterfly art Dawn has received for World Lupus Day.
I think this is amazing and there is no better way to raise awareness than with art…don't you think ?
Happy Thursday !
