Kait handing off her painting of Jerome Bettis to himself.

Before my big move to Seattle I had it on my to do list to create a painting of former Pittsburgh Steeler running back Jerome Bettis. 2 years back I had met with Jerome’s marketing team and we collaborated on me creating a painting of him and auctioning off the painting for Jerome’s foundation, “ The Bus Stops Here”. Thing was I got so busy and caught up with commissions since the painting never had a deadline to be done, I never got around to doing the painting. So when I knew I was moving I knew I’d have to put my foot down and create the painting I had promised.

I wasn’t expecting to meet and give Jerome the painting so I was completely surprised when I went to drop it off to his team. Needless to say he loved the painting and it was the cherry on top before heading across country! the auction and prints of the painting to benefit The Bus Stops Here Foundation is TBD, but you can follow the foundation’s activity and get involved through
