Congratulations to parishioner Danielle Portera whose artwork was exhibited at the Samford Art Gallery for a week in April. Danielle's inspirational and positive artwork focused on the beauty of Down syndrome with photographs of her sister Dominique. “My sister has always been a source of personal inspiration. Although she has a disability, Down syndrome, she does not let it define her,” said Danielle. This Prince of Peace Catholic School alum graduated from Samford University on May 11 with a BA in fine arts. She is the daughter of Danny and Natalie Portera of Hoover.
