As part of The Drawing Hope Project, where I take drawings done by children with health conditions, and turn them into 'magical photos' starring themselves.

Spirited Naomi is five years old and has Mitochondrial Myopathy which means that her muscles and organs don’t get enough fuel to keep her body running like an average 5 year old - but that doesn’t stop her. She didn’t crawl, walk or talk until after 2 years old, but is now singing and dancing thanks to the therapists who have helped her come so far. Naomi tires easily and no one knows how debilitating the next obstacle will be to overcome, but she is determined to soar above it all to bring awareness for all children who have flown before her while waiting for a cure. Despite her condition, she still believes that anything is possible. Even becoming the fairy that pollinates the poppies.
