THE WITH TWO HANDS
my dad always had one motto. dream big and make them happen....
So this dream I had started to grow. what if every gift people purchased for a loved one had a way to benefit the greater good? When I started selling prints of my artwork a few years back - I decided to give that theory a test run. Ever since that day, we've been donating 10% of the sale of prints back to various non- profit organizations that support a range of causes.
And penny by penny those small 10 percents have added up and up. Over the course of the time I've been on this mission we've been able to donate over $1,500 to various organizations like St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, The United Way of South Louisiana in wake of the catastrophic floods in 2016, the Make-A- Wish Foundation, and many more! Small percents making one heck of a big difference.
It's then that With Two Hands Creative's motive became a mission for every gift to give back. I hope you'll join in with me!
Hey y'all, I'm Gracie - the two hands behind With Two Hands Creative! I was born and raised on the acreage of incredible food, two stepping tunes, and bayou sunsets that is Lafayette, Louisiana.
Growing up, my parents encouraged me to pursue art since my first class in the 2nd grade and flash forward about 16 years - through a bachelor's degree in graphic design, calling 4 different countries home, and the Best of Otis Redding album on repeat in the background - here I am!
Through it all - two things have remained constant in my venture through different art mediums - from traditional painting to modern design - and those are my undeniable love for creating pieces of work that hold memories and my determination to use each piece to help make a difference.
MAKER ON A
painting your grandmother's house, your beloved family pup, or the church you got married in....
designing the logo for your livelihood...penning the laugh lines that hug your Dad's eyes as tight as his embrace...
Those are the things I love to create. Freezing the memories that make your heart skip a beat...those are the ones I want to get to know.
