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.
