This original piece for JIGGY x Debra Magid x Team Fox is a special edition 500pc puzzle. 50% of proceeds will be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation and 25% of proceeds go to the artist, Debra.
Debra's story and artwork, as portrayed in Zack's film, brought hope to the Parkinson's and Team Fox communities and inspired this collaboration with JIGGY for April's Parkinson's Awareness Month.
Team Fox is the grassroots community fundraising program of The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Since 2006, Team Fox members worldwide have been turning their passions and interests into opportunities to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson's research. The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with the disease today. When donating through Team Fox, every penny goes straight to high-impact research programs to help speed a cure. We’re here. Until Parkinson’s isn’t.
Debra Magid, a Rhode Island School of Design graduate, spent more than 35 years as a designer before rediscovering her fine arts roots and the love of making art. Diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2012, Debra approaches her art with a passion and urgency that only an uncertain future can create. Her artwork is a joyful exploration of the intersection of the human form, intense color and movement. Experimenting with scale, texture and composition in pastel, watercolor and acrylic, her work now focuses on how the basic human form - and particularly the face - can be interpreted and rendered to be both real and imaginary. Debra’s artwork is owned in several private collections in addition to having been shown in galleries in New York City, the Greater Tri-State area and South Korea.
Shake With Me:
In the fall of 2016, Debra agreed to let her son, Zack Grant, document on film the relationship between her art and her condition. What started as an exploration of Debra's growth as an artist in the face of Parkinson's Disease grew into a larger story of creativity, health, family and the will to cope.
