OUR PURPOSE

Uniting Art + Health

Portrait Connection pairs critically ill children with fine artists, who paint a joy-filled portrait of each child. At a community ceremony, the art is presented to the family to become a sanctuary of peace, love, and joy in their home.

Help bring the healing power of art to families facing critical childhood illness.

 
Laurel Knight, one of Portrait Connection’s first portrait artists, has created several beautiful pieces to help bring comfort and light to families across the nation.

“Our portrait is a treasure! We hung it where it is the first thing we see in the morning, and it gives us the strength to get through treatments, doctors, bills, and emotions.”

~ A Mother
