Giving back to the community
Coffee and Canvas is one of my passions. Another passion of mine, maybe even a bigger one, is giving back to the community and helping those in need through art. I had well over a hundred paintings from my Coffee and Canvas teaching adventures over the last five years. These paintings were piled high on shelves and I decided to get them in the hands of people who run or help some of my favorite Nashville non-profit programs. The non-profits listed below have paintings you can purchase to help further fund their programs! My intention is that you would take some time to read about the programs below and if you feel led make a contribution to them by purchasing a painting. Please, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if have a non-profit to tell us about in Nashville, TN or our newly added city, Buffalo, NY! Thank you.
