Literary Butterfly Painting Contest, Win An Original Painting By Thyroid Patient And Advocate, Allyson Jones Averell
Allyson Jones Averell (Ally) was featured in Thyroid Awareness Month and Thyroid.About.com by Mary Shomon, for a facepainting she did in honor of thyroid awareness month.
Allyson’s work is gorgeous. She’s launched a “Thyroid Figher Files” series about fighting thyroid disorders and cancers. In fact, 10% of proceeds are donated to the American Cancer Society.
A bit about Ally: “Ally has attended Campbell University, Philadelphia University, and Rutgers University all where she studied art. However, for the most part Ally is self-taught. All art work is done by eye and freehand. Drawn to her love of Disney and animals, she began as a child recreating characters and her pets on a regular basis. Ally is happily married and lives at her home with her three crazy, highly intelligent (but much loved) border collies.”
