Golden Valley Artist Paints Thank You Postcards for Health Care Workers
Everyday essential health workers put themselves at risk for COVID-19. To show appreciation, a Golden Valley artist is giving away free ‘thank you’ postcards to people who want to show their support.
“I think it’s just a tiny gesture of gratitude,” said Nicky Torkzadeh. “If you can just reach out and tell them that we know you’re working really hard. You’re closest to the virus and you’re doing a lot for us.”
Torkzadeh’s used acrylic paint on black paper to create the images on the original postcards. The Golden Valley artist is known for her vibrant, eye-catching paintings, mostly of nature and animals.
“I’ve been a nature girl since I was little. We had a big yard growing up and had cats everywhere,” Torkzedeh reminisced.
Torkzadeh said after painting the different postcard options, she printed them. Torkzadeh added that people can order packets of four and she’ll ship them.
She hopes all the hardworking men and women will feel appreciated by her art and the messages they receive.
“Even though we can’t be there with you, we do really appreciate what you’re doing,” said Torkzadeh.
