First Portrait of The Year

Ms. Eva Markvoort,
Posthumous portrait
Since her untimely passing almost four years ago after a courageous battle with Cystic Fibrosis,  Eva has raised $1.4m for CF. She ran a blog called 65 Red Roses, telling the world about her life and death battle, raising awareness about CF, not to mention moving many hearts along the way, including mine which is why I wanted to paint her.

  See how you can donate to CF and watch Eva's documentary "65 RED ROSES" on the Oprah Winfrey OWN Channel or Metflix.
