Portrait Artist with a Heart

Can artists use their skills to make the world a kinder place? Portrait artist Kaziah Hancock has found a way. With her paintings, she reaches out in sympathy and love to those who have suffered one of the greatest losses possible—the death of an adult child. Using a photo reference, she paints portraits of fallen troops and sends them to the surviving parents as a gift.

“Kaziah figured out years ago that an artist can do little to stop a war. Her gift would be a deliverance to the people left to battle at home.” –from the video
