Inspirational night with Southeastern Guide Dogs these working dogs help transform lives. Second time I’ve worked with this amazing organization, though last night was my first visit to their campus outside Bradenton. Animated and documentary short films were played, each one brought me to tears in different ways. Facinating to hear stories of how the organization has grown over the last 30 years, along with a truly inspirational keynote speaker. Hearing about her experiences being discriminated for being blind, how having a guide dog companion has transformed her life. Really put things into perspective for me about how we have the ability to overcome great adversity. Nights like that are unforgettable and reflect what makes working with this charity on projects, just as an artist, is life changing.

Honored to be collaborating on painting these two statues for Zenith Insurance it was a unique challenge to visually problem solve. Each office branch had very detailed and different ideas of how their Superhero could embody their working environment or city vibe. Can you guess which statue goes with which location? Orlando or Hollywood, FL? Oddly enough the names for the Puppies were chosen by each office branch without knowledge of the other location's choice. The names of Sunny and Luna balance each other like the Yin and Yang. L
