Local artist helping U.S. Military service members heal

A local artist is helping U.S. Military service members heal through creativity.

Dawna Pearce uses art as a way to express the powerful emotions that come with returning from war.

Pearce is a veteran herself, who is now helping others heal.

The piece on display Wednesday in Grover Beach showed a soldier reading a letter.

"We'll re-read the same letters because that may be all that we have with us or we have access to over and over again until they're just worn out little shreds of paper. People don't realize how much a single letter can mean in a field of so much turmoil and angst," Pearce said.

Pearce sells her art to raise money to send supplies overseas.
