It's not a duplicate. We are screaming out too, outraged!!! That has got to stop! When you see what is happening to women and sweat precious children like Zahra! It's got to stop!!!! My daughter-n-law loves your art and she's screaming too!

For Domestic Violence Awareness Month, BAVA is hosting an "Artist Trading Card" challenge.

I have lived through this. My adopted mother was physical abusive. Then I met a boyfriend that almost killed me 3 times. I had a friend of mine that her family helped her find a shelter, but her husband knew where she worked. He showed up when she got to work by herself. He shot her in the head, pulled her out of her van, stoled it and ran over her body as he was leaving. Then he returned to her work place to shoot the rest of her family that had helped her and her children to escape from him. Then when he could not find the family he wanted to kill, because they were having to make funeral arrangements, this big ol' bad ass abuser and murderer, sat his self down in the breakroom and blew his on brains out. I wish he would have done that way before he abused everyone else. No, one deserves to live like that or die like that. Thank U Michelle for speaking out, my daughter-n-law showed me your art and what you are speaking out for!!!! Keep Yelling!!!!
I, too am a servivor, and through Circle of Caring, as, Founder and Presient of the Board I am working in the Lake Norman Region to help end family violence, by creating safe and sacred places.
I heard you speak for My Sister's House last year and hope that all things in life bring you beauty and peace. I hope to raise funds in order to begin the process of training clergy and caregivers in religious insitutions to learn how to respond when someone dicloses abuse to them.
I hope that you continue to use your talent and breavery to inform others . I would be please to help anyway I can. I am a DV speaker for United Family Service, as well. Be safe and happy
Psalm 57:1......the healing verse I believe God inspired David to write just for those who have know this type of pain. It helped me.
Thank you for all you are doing. I was in your shoes years ago when there were no such labels as: spousal rape or domestic violence. The police just called it: "tough luck." Due to you and women like you, times have changed..thank God!
May we know them,
May we raise them,
May we be them!
Recovery is possible! I work as a Christian Counselor now. I counsel DV ladies for free. It is my privilege. Keep up the wonderful, much needed work, Michelle!
Thank you for sharing your story and for taking a stand against domestic violence. Men who abuse and control and rage are cowards, bullies and inhuman. There are many women I know right now who are in dangerous situations and afraid to leave. Many claim they are staying for the sake of the children. That statement is puzzling to me, because I've seen too many cases of men who began with violence toward a spouse, later also abused their children.
Bless you, and I pray for wholeness, peace and safety for you and your family...
Thank you so much, I found this link in a desperate moment, trying to tell myself that there are other women out there who have achieved to recover themselves after this experience. You are truly inspiring.
thank you for leading me to this link. youre inspiring voice will help me keep mine. i am blessed to have found you.
I always found it remarkable (Maybe not so much these days) that it was always something of mine that was broken, smashed, before it turned on me. I have an idea, for a card. Hopefully I can get it out in the next day or two.
Out of everything that was ruined, the worst was a Christmas tree that I had since I my daughter was born. Along with numerous collectible glass ornaments. One Christmas I was dragged over that tree with fragments of glass sticking in various parts of my body. The branches and lights were yanked out and strewn all over the living room. It wasn't a holiday it was a living nightmare as I was beaten unconsious.
Years later my now husband would buy another tree in hopes of replacing that one. I tried to appreciate the new tree, after all it was given with love. Yet my daughter and I somehow missed the old one still packed up in the basement. To us it was a lifetime of memories, nothing would ever compare.
Last year I took that tree out, fixed the base the best way I knew how and strung lights on it, and a new collection of ornaments my daughter and I had started to gather once again. I have tears in my eyes telling this. That tree was the most beautiful sight you have ever seen. It was a testament of what had come before and what lie ahead. I actually posted the tree online and no one could believe the history it had, nowhere was it evident.
My card would be a picture of that tree. It speaks for my spirit, still beautiful after the abuse, still proud and still making memories.
Just as you are a living testament of a survivor. Thank you! (Hugs)Indigo
I can't tell you how much your story and art means to me.
We are different but also the same. For me, my abuser hasn't been a man. It's been life itself. I've avoided living, because of my fear and sometimes hatred of it.
Your words and paintings help me not give in to my own demons. To not let anxiety and depression rule my life.
Thank you for having the courage to not only survive and share your story but to also move forward and become an inspiration to others.
Thank you for sharing your story, but more so, thank you for being so brave and becoming an advocate. Good for you.
Although bruises fade, the horror of those butchered paintings tell a powerful story. Somehow, I knew you would recognize this. I am in awe of you. Thank you.
I am so sorry for the horror you endured, and for the miscarriage of justice that was done to you in its aftermath.
But I am so inspired and awed by your voice and your determination. You are a powerful force!
Your artwork is tragically beautiful.
Thank you for sharing your story and for continuing to help other survivors.
Wow -- kudos to you for being strong enough to not only stand up and speak out but to REACH out to others as both a volunteer and as an advocate for your organization.
And as I read early on about the slashed photos I hoped that there was a way those could be used to get the message across -- and then I read that they are. That's AWESOME! Awesome because he couldn't silence your work and doubly awesome because he actually did himself a disservice because they speak a language that words can't about this ugly scourge that is domestic violence.
Cringing in the shadows and living in anonymity is not living. Glad to hear you've come through that. I know you are a stronger person and I'm sure a better mother as a result. You're truly someone for your child to look up to.

He failed, you know.
He wasn't trying to take away your body of work, he was trying to take away your sense of self. But he miscalculated. For as much of yourself as you poured out on those canvasses, they were not a fraction of the self that created them. And in taking a butcher knife to them he thought he destroyed them. In the way they speak to the masses, to the visitors to your exhibits, he made them more powerful than ever. In the way they speak to you, and changed your view of your self, he made them priceless. I wonder if that's occurred to him.
Most often the stories that come to VU break my heart. The inhumanity of them either makes me want to curl up and die or beat someone senseless (depends on the day I guess). But once in a while a story like yours appears here that leaves me feeling hopeful, that renews my faith in the human spirit and keeps me from throwing in the towel. And those all-too-rare stories are so very important. Not because they keep me from caving in, but because they deliver a message of hope to those who are still groping in the darkness.
They offer a vision of a future to people who desperately need to believe in a future. Who need more than anything to know that if you can get there, there is life on the other side. Life like what's in the brochure, not the travesty that they've been living in for so long.
As I was reading your opening I didn't get the same feeling of dread I usually do. Because you didn't "back into the story", you set the table with undiluted truth, no excuses, no evasion, just fact. And I knew in the first few lines that you were going to be okay by the time you were done telling the story. And in bringing that message to others, more victims will come to the place you have already reached. A place that, if not perfect, is at least peaceful. So on their behalf, I thank you.
PS: Your project reminded me of one I heard about here in my area just recently. It's a show -- actually a series of shows -- called "Speaking Without Tongues", and while it's not always all about domestic violence, it is in this case. If you live in the Raleigh-Durham (NC) area, the exhibit is at Duke University through 11/14. Visit http://www.hiddenvoices.org/ for complete details.
You are a shining light! I can hear it all the way over here. What you went through was unimaginable. But I hear joy in your voice. You are a survivor and you are determined to make more survivors!!!
I am truly humbled
Being a survivor is a testament to your strength. I hope you inspire someone else to do the same.
Thank you for sharing.
This is crazy, this is crazy....I have a series of ATCs I did with regard to my own abuse. While I'm not quite ready to turn those loose into the world yet, I'd be happy to reconstruct one or two, or even something fresh, to contribute.
Thank you SO much for sharing of yourself. I cannot imagine walking into my studio and finding everything therein destroyed. I can't wait to see the fruits of this project. It's just feels so hopeful to me.
