About the postcard artwork 

 

Art on a postcard has made me aware of the Hepatitis C virus, the causes , symptoms and the treatment with further and provided research. I captured intimate moments in intimate spaces, I choose that moment and space because of how HC virus is caught and passed on ,like a child born to a mom with HCV , sharing of needles and grooming gears , not researching tattoo parlors and unsafe sex. The colours are to evoke emotions of hope and calm which is what I believe reflects the Fundraise of The Trust for the people who do not know they have hepatitis C.
