Malala Yousafzai (2017)

Oil on Canvas

40 x 40″

Malala Yousafzai was 17 years old in the portrait I painted of her. She holds her hand across her heart in gratitude after being announced as a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, on October 10th , 2014. She is the youngest person ever to have won the prestigious prize.

To me, she represents the courage and compassion needed for the next generation to make the world a better place. Young activists like Malala and the teenage gun reformers campaigning in the #enough movement are inspiring, and make me hopeful that my daughter will grow up in a safer, fairer world.
