For Stephanie Yakely Danforth art is her second career.  She was a pediatric nurse practitioner for 20 years. In 2000, she traveled to Kenya and had an epiphany.

“My soul was touched forever by my experience there,” she said. “Since then, every dollar I make with my art goes directly to help provide education for children in need. My years in pediatrics and art blend together to make the purpose of my creating art even more profound to me. I love creating my art but my art allows me to help change lives.”
