ASHEVILLE, N.C. - Nov. 14 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- This fall artist Damaris Pierce launches her new, national postcard art project just in time to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. The project, entitled "I Am Thankful," encourages individuals of all ages and organizations such as craft guilds, public schools and counseling centers to create original postcard artwork expressing gratitude. Postcards submitted can honor people, places, things or circumstances and artwork can be simple or elaborate as long as it remains two-dimensional.

All postcards will be considered for public display. In January 2008 Pierce will feature submitted gratitude postcards on her newly redesigned web site

"Gratitude is more than a concept," states Pierce, "it is a state of being that can be cultivated every day". "I believe when you focus on what you are thankful for each day you begin to live a more joyful, fulfilled and pleasurable life," she continues, "I want to share this with others and create a public display of gratitude that ripples around the globe!" Pierce hopes to attract a variety of people and groups to the project including elementary school classrooms, art students, scrapbook enthusiasts, spiritual communities and more.

"All people understand what thankfulness is, it is universal, it crosses all cultural boundaries, " adds Pierce, "I want to encourage them to express, share and live it."

Pierce, a German native, is a self-taught, "outsider" artist who works with many mediums including stone, wood, paint and glass. She moved to the U.S. in 1990 and has resided in Asheville, NC since 1998. After a successful corporate career Pierce was inspired to make a dramatic transformation in her life. She chose to relocate to the mountains to begin living a more conscious, meaningful life dedicated to creative expression. Her original artwork is currently featured in multiple Asheville art galleries and she consults with clients as a creative and spiritual mentor.

Pierce was also recently chosen to be the German translator for the EMOTO PROJECT. This project is the latest from Dr. Masaru Emoto, who is currently developing a children's book of his nationally recognized studies of water crystals, The Hidden Messages From Water.
