Seven-year-old Monterey native Lizzy was diagnosed with a neurologic disorder just after she turned five, and her chemotherapy lasted until the end of 2015. Lizzy’s favorite subject in school is art and she wants to be an artist when she grows up.

For her wish, Lizzy asked to work with an artist to create a painting, and have it hang in a gallery. Her wish began in June, when Lizzy and her family traveled to San Francisco. Lizzy worked one-on-one
with an artist at the San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) to create three acrylic paintings on canvas. Lizzy got to unveil her first painting at a large SFAI gathering, then created two additional paintings with her instructor.

To complete her wish, Lizzy’s three paintings were beautifully framed and displayed at Bennett Sculpture Carmel. On August 6th, a crowd of well-wishers gathered for a reception in Lizzy’s honor at the gallery.

Special thanks to Dana Nachman for capturing this video of a wish come true!
