Shell Harris, San Antonio Member Since July 2011 Artist Statement Hello everyone! My name is Michelle (Shell) Harris. Welcome to my new site where I showcase my current freelance projects in which I work with artists living with disabilities from all over the world.
Currently, I am working with a young man from Haiti who was horribly affected by the 2010 earthquake which wrecked his community.
Fancillon Chery's home was in ruins but God sent a man by the name of Dr. Fred Sorrells and Dr. Fred not only helped Francillon through his amputation therapy but he also learned about Francillon's creative abilities and through Dr. Fred's nonprofit IISPORT.ORG he gathered all kinds of art supplies for Francillon and was amazed at his abilities. With the help of Dr. Fred, Francillon now employees other Haitians in his community who were affected by the devastating earthquake of 2010.
I represent and assist these artists at no charge so please consider a small donation to help me continue to help others. You may advertise your site here www.shellharris.webs.com for only $20.00 per month. These donation and advertisements make it possilbe to expand the marketing of my artists.
If you'd like to donate and get an ad placed on my site, I can either design your graphical advertisement or you may provide your own or if you just want to place a text link, I'm happy to help with that, also. All proceeds from the sales of his artwork is used to support not only Fancillon himself, but also everyone he now employs and teaches his artistic skills to.
Now, a little about me...
I also live with a disability called Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type II. I do my work from my bed if I'm not able to get to my home office. I love to help others. This is kind of my only way to give back to the world. I hope to work with some American artists soon so if you would like some help with selling your artwork and you have a disability, just contact me, TODAY! :)
It was Dr. Fred Sorrells, President of International Institute of Sports - IISPORT (iisport.org) who introduced Francillon's Art to me. Immediately after hearing the inspiring story of Francillon Chery, I knew I wanted to help him. I am now adding his beautiful folk art style paintings to my online gallery.
