They say a picture is worth a thousand words….which is nice, because we definitely don’t have room for a thousand words here. Instead, we’ll bring you an art to highlight vitiligo beauty - and support a good cause.
“Vitiligo Beauty” is a campaign we’re currently running in collaboration with Nicole Troupe to raise money and awareness for vitiligo. Nicole is working as a commissioned portrait artist for private and official commissions. Nicole’s work has been showcased in national art exhibits as well as a number of local exhibitions across Maryland and Pennsylvania in such locations as the Mercersburg Academy, Mansion House Art Gallery, Pennsylvania College of Art and Design, Council for the Arts, Washington County Arts Council and the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts, among others.
Outside her commissioned work she enjoys collaborating with celebrities and public figures to bring attention to special causes or for specific projects. She lives with her husband and two children in Greencastle, PA.
