Portland, Oregon – A Portland woman is selling note cards that feature art work by inmates on Oregon’s Death Row. Cynthia Edwards says she’s been pen pals with a Death Row inmate for the last ten years and that’s how she learned some of them spend time drawing. She was impressed¬† by an inmate drawing of a butterfly and decided to create butterfly note cards.

Edwards, who is a member of Oregonians For An Alternative To The Death Penalty, sells the cards through word of mouth with half the proceeds going to the inmate and the other half to Make A Wish Foundation. She says everyone thinks the cards are “beautiful.”
