My name is Ewa Grochowska, on April 4, 2012 I went from being a victim to a survivor of Domestic Violence. This does not define me, but it has molded me into the person that I have become. In December 2013, I created Freedom4Ewa to advocate for all of us who have been impacted by domestic violence. I have volunteered my time with children living in domestic violence shelters by providing them with art programs. I used a portion of the proceeds from my artwork sales to purchase the art supplies for the programs. Because of my motivation and continuous efforts, I have also had the opportunity to speak at high-schools, universities, to non-profit organizations, newspapers, news stations and initiating campaigns where I shared my story of abuse and survival to spread awareness. I share my story to reach out to other victims and survivors, so they know they are not alone.
On April 4, 2019 I celebrated my 7 year anniversary of Freedom. I have evolved from creating art as a healing tool to creating art that brings people together and focuses on our #WoundedEnvironment in and outside of the home.
This year I am not only creating art that brings awareness to the wounded environment within the four walls that we call home, but I have already started to create sculptures that depict our wounded environment outside of the home.
Mother Earth is hurting, and I cannot stand by and watch her be abused and not do anything about it. I am sculpting pieces that represent our dying coral reefs to bring awareness and inspire others to act.
$10.00 from each sculpture sale will be used to purchase a Sea Change and All The Way To The Ocean book through Sea Shepherd Global. Each book will go to a child living in a local domestic violence shelter!
Your support will allow Sea Shepherd Global to keep protecting our environment as well as help educate and inspire young children to make a positive difference in this world.
Much Love to you all!
