As a mother and artist, I was moved to by the collective emotion of grief and sadness over the sudden departure of Kobe Bryant, one of the most beloved sports stars. I started painting as soon as I heard the news on Sunday, February 26th, 2020. Two weeks later, this portrait emerged.

I’ve never seen so much art created by artists worldwide in record time! Within Hours of NBA Star Kobe Bryant’s Death, Street Artists Around the World Began Painting Tribute Murals.  One literally sprung up overnight in Laguna Beach!  Dozens of artists were inspired to create a Kobe Bryant Tribute Paintings.

Wanting to stand out from the crowd of Celebrity Portrait painters, I’ve decided to follow the traditional painting approach. Using many layers to create a desired three dimensional effect, often with small brushstrokes of complementary colors. After embellishing with gold leaf, this portrait radiated.
