Captured a photo of this beauty strolling along a ledge early in the morning while I enjoyed my coffee enjoying the views of the beautiful Sonoran Desert. She stood there posing for me with such confidence. I was so intrigued by her look that I had to create a watercolor painting of her. Watercolor on 9x12 Arches.

Title or Location: Vivi
This painting is part of a collection I am working on called the Beautiful Project. The Beautiful Projects lifts up everyday people in our communities doing amazing things. People nominate people in their lives they think are beautiful. Then we sit down and have a discussion about why. They give me a bunch of pictures and I paint the beautiful person and write up a story about what I found that was beautiful about them as I painted. Vivi is beautiful because she never gives up.

Title or Location: BLOOM
BLOOM is one of my largest pieces to date, consisting of layers of acrylic paint and marker to create intermingled layers of texture, colour and interest. My artwork as a whole aims to explore beauty and chaos as one and the same in a neurodivergent mind. I have ADHD and my art is a representation of what it's like to be inside my brain. Bright, busy, all at once, all the time. Through this I aim to foster a feeling of belonging and connectedness for people, largely neurodivergent people like me

Title or Location: Together Forever
Together Forever.The story behind this family portrait is quite sad. My friend Iris Costanilla commissioned me to paint a portrait of her family of 4. The sad part is, they never had a photograph of the 4 of them together. Her husband Bruce had frequently been away from home since he was a US citizen and was required to do so. While in the US, Bruce was diagnosed as being terminally ill with cancer and was unable to return to his family in the Philippines. After his death, Iris gave me a pho
