Dandelion Wishes evolved from a personal story of redemption, where founder and director, Lesley Glenn discovered healing from her pain and a new passion for life through painting and self-expression. And now, that is exactly what she offers and teaches others – how to access the healing and transformative aspects of art and creativity. With a heart for social justice at all levels, Glenn uses art because it transcends all languages, cultures and economic conditions. She has taken Dandelion Wishes to impoverished children and women in Nicaragua and provides healing arts workshops in prisons, juvenile detention centers, women’s shelters, and rehabilitation centers.
