Earlier this year I had a chance to audition for a part in a short Christmas film. I went to the audition and read for the part they asked me to do. A week later I got a call from one of the filmmakers and she said they had chosen someone else for the part. BUT the director really liked my presence so they had written a new scene with a new character with me in mind and would I like to do it? What!!?! I am humbled and thankful for the opportunity. The makers are hoping the show will be well-received and aiming for it to be a pilot with more episodes later. They are also making a comic which includes my character, a quirky angel. The film is family friendly and faith-based. It will be release on Pureflix and some other platforms.To be released December 2021.

Two art Shows on Labor Day Weekend!
Saturday, September 4 was the Opening reception for For the Record Art Show at Spectra Art Space. The show was super fun and so good to see people getting to see live art! All art for this event was created on or used vinyl records, CDs, and tapes.
Sunday September 5 at the RiNo Showcase at Number Thirty Eight was a rocking affair. 50 artists and six bands and such a great venue. A perfect way to spend some of the holiday weekend.
anti-ageism birthday card campaign
In the beginning of 2021, I got to create a card for the organization, Changing the Narrative. They commissioned a diverse group of artists to design birthday cards that celebrate age and not cast aging in a negative light. I am privileged to be part of their campaign against ageism. CtN is partnering with Hope Tank, a social enterprise gift store in Denver. You can check out the cards and purchase at hopetank.org .
Bible illustrations for Gaza Works
In April 2021 I wrapped up a series of Bible illustrations for Gaza Works (formerly World Relief Mozambique). Gaza Works is an organization that helps people develop sustainable agricultural practices in Mozambique and surrounding area. They will use copies of these artworks on the mission field to present the gospel of Jesus. They wanted art that would depict representations of people in the Bible in a more culturally connective way, not your typical "westernized" version of Jesus. The original illustrations will be auctioned off to raise funds for Gaza Works.

This is the second year I have created a window mural at Orchard Town Center in Westminster, Colorado. The theme for the 2021 Artwalk is " Let the Adventure Begin!" The opening of the artwalk is Saturday, June 12 and murals will be up from June to October 2021. The title of my mural is "The Sky's The Limit!" As part of the Artwalk, I also painted two Adirondack chairs which will be auctioned off for charity.
