Artist Bio: Liz Phelps
My concern about immigrant rights began with the fact that my father came to this country as a refugee. I taught art and English to newly arrived immigrants at the high school level. For the past 20 years, I’ve enjoyed raising my twin sons. Throughout the years, I’ve continued to paint, including some murals. Now that my sons are off at college, I have more time to create art. I’m particularly interested in art that addresses social justice issues
We are so excited to share these four beautiful pop up cards that have been donated to us as a part of our fundraising efforts this year!
Each card was made by sisters Adia (age 16) and Assata (21), from Georgia. See flat version of the designs here.
From the artists:
My sister and I have really enjoyed creating this series of pop up cards for the NNIRR fundraiser. We are children of immigrants and it meant a lot to use our art towards something we care so much about.
Each card is made up of several layers so that every part has a tactile element to it. We used a variety of materials: paint, alcoholic markers for the people, and mosaics of construction paper (my sister’s technique) for the butterflies and many other elements throughout the cards.
