An Online Art Gallery Collective

Showcasing Female Military, Veteran and Wounded Warrior Artists


My name is Christina Helferich-Polosky.  

I am 100% disabled and was medically retired by the US Army in 2009 after 11+ years of active duty service for illnesses and injuries-most later attributable to unknown airborne chemical, environmental and burn pit exposures-that occurred during my multiple combat deployments to Kuwait/Iraq (OIF-2003) and Afghanistan (OEF-2008). For years after, I let my "invisible wounds" define who I was and how I saw myself: worthless. Out of those dark moments, I turned to art as a way to express what I could barely say out loud: "I may be wounded, but I'm NOT worthless!"

So I created this site to specifically showcase current female military, veteran and wounded warrior artists, like myself, from all branches of the US Military to give us all the voice I thought I had lost for all those years. 

Please join me in helping to support, promote, and empower these artists. 

We may be wounded, but we refuse to consider ourselves worthless any longer. 


And now is the time!


Can we please sit down and have an honest conversation without being marginalized again by being labeled just another group of angry females? Our experiences matter and they are all worth sharing! From the wonderful to the awful. We matter, our art matters and we are not alone. There are other female military members, veterans and wounded warriors using art in similar ways to me and it is time we shine a light on us all; so:
