GREEN BAY (WGBA) Megan Deprey has been artist for as long as she can remember.

"I have many siblings and all of us are into the arts in someway," she said.

It is passion hers. She loves sitting down and painting a new portrait in some fancy design.

"There is always a different stlyle," she said. "I usually paint portraits and most of them are musicians because I am also a huge music fan."

However, she only recently started selling her designs. She did it to give back to the people dealing with the financial burden of COVID-19.

"We are donating half of the earnings to everyone I sell to a service worker now out of a job," Deprey said. "I am well connected in that industry. I have friends who were laid off."

So far she has sold 8 paintings and donated around $1,300 dollars to people. She wants to keep doing it.

"I get some requests," she said. "It is always fun, especially now because I know it is helping someone with a paycheck or similar."

If you would like to donate to here or buy a painting, she is selling them off her facebook page:
