My goal is to continue to create art that could be used for the empowerment of those who have experienced similar difficulties in life as I have, and in turn take these challenges with autonomy, hope and faith. Most importantly, to have my work as a tool to support worthwhile programs such as the fight against cancer, human-trafficking, and domestic and sexual violence.
Where there is kindness among people, there is hope for our human race, especially in these uncertain times. One such kind person is Leni Marie Acosta Knight, a petite, soft-spoken, unassuming lady who was still in her teens when she migrated with her family from the Philippines to join her dad in the United States.
Leni Knight, who is 61 and a cancer survivor, is partnering with Hawaii recording artist Meleana Brown to present “Hold On,” an art exhibition, auction and concert on Saturday, in the Cupola Gallery and Bamboo Garden of Stage Restaurant in the Honolulu Design Center.
