Meet the Artist

Today we are proud to introduce you to Lexie, one of the students at St. Dominic Savio Academy.  For the next two weeks, Paper Clouds Apparel has been given the opportunity to showcase her beautiful artwork on our t-shirts. Here at PCA, we think it is important to provide you with the names and stories of the individuals whom you empower with every purchase.

Lexie and her mom.
11-year-old Lexie, the namesake for Arizona's "Lexie's Law," has been diagnosed with autism, cerebral palsy, and mild mental retardation. Despite her label and the fact that she is non-verbal, Lexie is a happy and awesome sister to her two sisters and two step-brothers. Lexie speaks to the world through sign language and with the help of her iPad. She loves horses, rainbows, Veggie Tales, pink, dinosaurs, owls, and Batman. 

When you buy a t-shirt from PCA in the next two weeks, Lexie will see 50 percent of the profit return back to St. Dominic Savio Academy - the school that has provided her with both the support and challenges she needs as a special needs student.
