Casa Endless Summer Board

This board was commissioned by a woman who recently moved to San Clemente, California. After naming her home “Casa Endless Summer” she was on the search for a piece of art for her living room that would capture that easy-going beach lifestyle.

I visited a well in Rwanda

For those that don’t know, South Africa has been my home for the past six months. My husband and I have been volunteering with Christian non-profits, working and traveling. I was pretty reluctant to leave my life in California not knowing exactly what the future would hold for RESURFACE. However, one of the main reasons I think I was sent to Africa was to see real, living examples of people who struggle to find clean water on a daily basis. I was astonished by all the opportunities I had to share the story of RESURFACE half-way around the world. This was especially true when we took a side trip to Musanze, Rwanda- a small town on the border of Congo and Uganda. The majority of their day is centered around walking great lengths to collect clean water from deep water wells. The wells were constructed by the local government after they took away their rights to collect water from its natural source in the jungle due to the danger of mountain gorillas. These photos show both the hardship and the joy that comes with their daily trek to collect water. I was humbled and affirmed after this encounter and it reminded me of why I began RESURFACE and how important it is to continue to create awareness about the issue of clean water in Africa.

RESURFACE in Africa

Aleph Surf Foundation, where Will and I are volunteering in South Africa, hosted a gallery show in Cape Town called Milk and Honey. Red and Vanessa knew about my background with RESURFACE, so they asked me to create a board for the event.

Femme Noir Swimgerie

Who says swimwear can’t have a sensual side? An old friend from college recently called and asked me to paint a board for his new company called Femme Noir Swimgerie. We chose to paint their bombshell spokesmodel, Ashley Mattingly, wearing the Kimorthy suit from the Noir Collection.  The success of this swimwear-meets-lingerie company is simply bursting at the seams!

more than just coffee

A local So Cal coffee shop, The Neighborhood Cup, has an art gallery that is displaying my work for the month of November. They have live music, poetry readings, food and drink tastings as well as open mic nights. Oh ya, and their coffee is pretty much amazing too. The lavender latte is my personal fav. Check them out!
