 Beyond The Paint is a project that is benefiting Genesis Women’s Shelter. The idea is to have women from all walks of life share their story (stories will be shared in private only with artist Toni Martin) of hardships and how they have overcome their obstacles. The point is to help spread perspective and honor the women for their strength, bravery and integrity no matter the scale of their former or current struggles. All will be used to create painted portraits for an art show with a silent auction of the pieces benefiting charity.

Toni Martin's solo show "Beyond the paint" benefiting "Genesis Women’s shelter" involved interviewing women from all walks of life on the hardships they have faced and how they overcame those challenges to meet their goals and live strong healthy lives. The hardships included rape, neglect, domestic violence, substance abuse and more. Each portrait was created to capture the essence of these women in the form of a portrait that complimented them as a whole. Each piece was sold at the show allowing Toni Martin to write a donation check to Genesis which is dedicated to helping women and children in similar situations.
