Artists and designer, Kristen Herrington, is using her talent to promote community mindedness while creating a thing of beauty inspired by a local business.
Herrington is based out of the HRM and chose her local business from across Nova Scotia.
For the Inverness County connection; she is the wife of Mike Ryan of The Town Heroes. Ryan does all the photography to highlight her creations.
Her recent endeavour began roughly six weeks ago where she decided to create a piece of art based on a local business – their look or colour scheme.
Once the piece is sold, she spends 100 per cent of the profits made from the painting at the local business that inspired the painting.
Herrington said that she expects to do roughly 20-25 paintings.
