The conflict in Afghanistan is causing the most violence, abuse and exploitation among women and children. A portion of proceeds for this print will be donated to support the International Rescue Committee for aiding Afghans in crisis. The IRC has been providing aid in Afghanistan since 1988 by sheltering displaced families, supplying clean water/sanitation and cash assistance among many other services.

"Vénus Africaine" © Shireen Renée Art
This oil painting was inspired by a bronze statue created by a French artist from the19th century named Charles Cordier. Many of his works are on display at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, but this is one of my favorites. A portion of proceeds for these prints will go towards the Sphinx Organization, a non-profit committed to addressing the underrepresentation of young Black and Latinx musicians, specifically in classical music. Since childhood, my parents had me and my two sisters involved in music. Learning and playing music has had such a positive impact on my life, and I believe all kids should have that opportunity. Studies have shown that learning how to play music at a young age has many mental, cognitive, social and physical benefits.
