Justine Reichman, founder of Global Arts for Humanity, is always pleasantly surprised and grateful by how much she learns from her subjects every time she starts a new digital art project. Based in the Mill Valley area in Northern California, she has come to understand that when you commit your personal talents and passion to educate or enrich the lives of others, you always get back so much more than you could ever actually put in.
Whether it’s teaching struggling families about proper nutrition in Mexico or partnering with programs to educate children in Cambodia, the love and inspiration that these families and children share with you is always priceless. The joy that they share comes out in every photo she snaps.
Justine also teaches and shares her art in various forums through out Northern California and is always seeking out new partnerships with the causes that are near and dear to her heart. Promoting good nutrition, helping to educate those less fortunate and even promoting those people who work with pets guides Justine in her quest to use art to make the world a better place. She takes great comfort in her craft using from the words of Mahatma Gandhi who said, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
Years ago, Justine perfected her concept of combining traditional photography with digital artwork. Her inspiration comes in many forms and each project is often guided by the colors she imagines while working with the people or places she is photographing.
Despite Justine’s love of travel, she wants to share and learn more from the San Francisco community that she has made her home.
