Tuscaloosa, AL (BlackNews.com) — Scott Robinson Designs helped local victims of the deadly tornado that hit Tuscaloosa, AL on April 27, 2011, by donating original artwork to charity art shows. “Though it has been months since the tornado hit our city, many people still need help rebuilding their lives” says LaShonda Scott Robinson, Artist and President of Scott Robinson Designs.

Local art galleries and individual artists donate original works of art to silent charity auctions. The proceeds go to local families, schools, and individuals affected by the tornado.

“I was my duty to help,” says LaShonda. “I started Scott Robinson designs as a venue to uplift others through the soul fine art. So, to have my art work help others in my community really makes me feel good. This is exactly why I started Scott Robinson designs.”

LaShonda has donated art to many charity auctions. “Giving back is very important to me” she states. LaShonda was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2002. Art was therapeutic in helping her heal. “I am trying to help others through art because art is what helped me”. Scott Robinson designs has donated art to Easter Seals of West Alabama, Tuscaloosa Arts in Education, Jack and Jill of America Foundation, and United Cerebral Palsy of West Alabama.

Scott Robinson Designs, Inc. is an online art gallery that specializes in Fine African American Art. For more information on charity art donations or to view LaShonda’s artwork, please visit www.scottrdesigns.com.
