If you are interested in purchasing prints from the Tres Fridas Project collection (aka Mariam Paré, Reveca Torres, Tara Ahern) you can find those HERE. The series recreates famous paintings from art history to help redefine the way in which people think about disability. Tres Fridas Project documents and records Reveca, Mariam and Tara’s creative process as women artists with disabilities and authenticates the human experience of disability not as one of inspiration, shame, fear, or pity, but as one that is familiar and painted with love, pain, frustration, beauty, happiness and drive. To read more about the project HERE.

My illustration of "Girl with Flower" was showcased on the packaging of Omorose Cosmetic's Gift Set! I created the image digitally, first beginning with sketches of the girl and flowers using the Procreate App on my ipad drawing her with a stylus in my mouth, then further developing the drawing using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Working with founder Terry Liau on this special project has been a great experience. Visit their website at omorosecosmetics.com
