Artist: Yvetta Dunn
My name is Yvetta Dunn. I'm 19 years old and the mother of two children. I came to HomeFront's Family Preservation Center with the attitude that I was going to do whatever was necessary to find a new home for my children and me. Everyone at HomeFront's Family Preservation Center is a pleasure to be around, and I especially enjoy spending time painting in ArtSpace.
I first walked in ArtSpace to do some school work. The colors, emotions, and the words that came out of every picture hanging on the wall had me in a dream-like state. I started to doodle in my math work, and my first ArtSpace painting was born - "The XO," and then came more! I was so happy to find out that ArtSpace was open for everyone with flexible hours because I enjoy art so much! When I was in high school, I used art to escape from others that bullied me. I always drew cartoons from shows I watched and then I advanced to pulling images from my imagination for creating my own cartoons.
I love ArtSpace - it's fun, enjoyable, stress relieving, and I've met some great people that I hope to know for a long time.
