As an activist artist, I want to bring to attention the crisis that has been happening since 2014 and make an active move to support Ukraine in any way that I can. With that said I’m planning on having all profits from my sunflower prints and the original sunflower painting donated directly to the Red Cross Humanitarian Crisis in Ukraine Fund. The Sunflower is the national flower of Ukraine and is used as a symbol of peace for Ukrainians. In purchasing this print I hope that you can share your support for the nation of Ukraine.

The events happening in Ukraine are truly devastating and heartbreaking. Coming from a Polish background I’ve never felt so concerned for my Urkainain neighbors as they flea away from their homes and loved ones with nowhere to stay. I’m glad to identify with a country that has opened its homes and lives up to Ukrainian refugees but in Canada, however, it is not the case. Ukrainians can come to Canada but can not yet receive refugee status. Recently the Polish and Ukrainian communities in London and all over Canada have been pushing government officials to change this status, but we need your help.

A month ago people were turning their heads to the deadly battles that are present in Ukraine, but a month later society has moved on to the next tending Twitter post. The nation has asked the whole world to recognize the war crimes that are taking place, yet we are still sitting in our comfortable homes acting like this will end soon. The reality is that it won’t end without your help.
