Sisk - A Gallery of Giving

There's a saying that "actions speak louder than words," and this is true. It's easy for one to talk with good intentions, but typically, a good deed only comes about when one takes the initiative to apply said intentions to the world or people around them.

Mentioned throughout this blog and across social media are a plethora of examples showing how Farrah has helped those around her by listening, talking, and giving advice. In instances like this words become actions and saying becomes doing, but rarely are such intangible actions seen or believed by onlookers. Many who come across this blog are oft not aware of the kindness that Farrah emanates. This is because Farrah never sought fame; she only wanted to leave the world a better place than she found it.

However, tangible evidence of her kindness exists in her art, and in this blog posting, we display the work she made as gifts to others over the past year.


Whether she's out in the real world... 
 
 
 


 
 
...Or living in isolated incarceration...


 
 


 ...Farrah uses her sense of humor...




 
 
...Combined with her capacity for empathy and compassion...


 
 
 
...To give people hope...
 
 



...To shed light on their lives...


 
 
...To remind them to cherish those around them...
 
 

 
 
...To make people smile...
 
 
 


 ...Or just to give someone a part of her story.


 
 
 
No matter what hardship she faces, Farrah always finds a way to improve the lives of those she meets. She uses whatever she has, even if it's only words written on a postcard from jail, to make the world a better place. Imagine what good she could do if she wasn't in prison; if she wasn't subject to probation or lifetime internet ban.
 
Maybe one day, with your help, that will be possible. For now, stay tuned here at SaveOurSisk.org and keep an eye on @SaveOurSisk on Twitter for updates and ways to help Farrah "Sisk" Barney.
 
You can see more of Farrah's art at her gallery on Weasyl and her blog, "Ask-Keis".
