Healing Hearts is a painting by 7-year-old Yamariam Howard
There is a story behind this. Yamariam’s father Kip is a single father raising four kids on his own. We all have those days when that you wish you could do over or just not have experienced. Yesterday was one of those days for Kip. At the end of the day when he was getting ready for bed, Kip’s daughter brought this drawing to him. As Yamariam handed it to him, she said, “I made this for you with markers because I love you so much.”
Kip says of today, “Suddenly, today is one of the best days I’ve had all year. Art can do that. I’m a witness. Art changes consciousness.”
Kip Howard is many things: Single father of four fantastic kids; he is creative, humorously outraged, spontaneous, yet punctual and consistent. Outspoken and opinionated, backed up by research. Firm believer in the power of nature to heal.
And, clearly the father to a delightful and artistic daughter.
