  • Angelo Reeves Dominic wants to sell all his paintings to help Lea Joven, who is afflicted with leukaemia.

A nine-year-old boy has offered to sell all his eight artworks for Lea’s treatment.

Angelo Reeves Dominic, a fourth-grader who learnt about Lea’s condition from her mother’s friend, said: “I just want to help Lea live by selling all my paintings so she can get the best treatment,” said the Dubai-based homeschooling student
following the Seton Catholic Home School (US) curriculum.

Dominic has completed a small collection of Gouache paintings and is one of the youngest members of the Pinoy Visual Artists Association.

The UN Disarmament Group’s “Art For Peace” competition has recognised his
entry titled “X” which he entered in February 2012.
