A talented young artist by the name of Ashley Shaffer created “Hope” the beautiful artwork you see here. Ashley has shared her art as part of our Epilepsy Stigma Awareness Month.
Ashley was inspired to create this beautiful multi-media piece titled, “Hope” (2013) and has dedicated the piece to inspire people with epilepsy.
“I wanted to show my support for people living with epilepsy using purple, which is the color for Epilepsy Awareness. In creating the piece, I just wanted to pour more heart-soft colors in the symbol because it represents a lot of meanings such as love, support, caring, strong, growth, and everything which is hope and timeless,” said Ashley Shaffer.
Ashley is a creative woman who also happens to be deaf. She studied at National Technical Institute for the Deaf, Rochester Institute of Technology, and has been recognized for her artwork by the Dyer Arts Center. To see more of her work visit her page The Artwork of Ashley Shaffer.
And in Ashley’s words, “Believe More, Hope More!”
