I'm Not A Tourist Attraction

Human trafficking is a world wide human injustice where heinous sexual crimes are committed against young children from all walks of life. Some children, mostly girls, are as young as five years old. This painting was created to raise awareness about the devastating dehumanization currently happening in the world today.

The work tells a story 'Manga' style; each box representing a portion of the tale. It is my sincere hope that it will move people to action.

Teresa Carter follows the tradition of narrative painting, utilizing the human form as the central focal point. The inspiration for the 'stories' on canvas flows from the great themes of life—hope and joy, tragedy and despair and the soul's spiritual journey.
