Unchained is hosting their annual Mardi Gras Masquerade Gala at Bargetto Winery in Soquel, California! Saturday, Feb 6th 2016 from 6 pm to 9pm

I will be donating a custom pet portrait that will be in their silent auction!

They are an awesome organization that has helped many at risk youths and learn compassion and help animals in need!

About Unchained:

Canines Teaching Compassion is an Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) program that helps to change the lives of kids and save the lives of dogs by matching at-risk youth and shelter dogs together. The youth learn positive communication and interaction with one another through teaching the dogs good manners, social skills and basic commands. This training increases the dogs’ chances of becoming adopted, while it teaches the youth impulsivity-control, mastery of a skill, future orientation and the value of restorative justice.

The evening will offer dinner, wine, raffle, silent auction, live music & entertainment.

I have been artistic in one way or another all my life. Growing up in a creative family fueled my desire towards being an artist. I moved to Santa Cruz, CA from Detroit, MI in 2009, I needed a creative outlet and started volunteering at a local Clay Studio where I created many hand built ceramic vessels and fun sculptures. From there, I stumbled into sewing and started a handbag line under the name Mackerilla Design. After many years of sewing my bag designs, (which I currently still sell sewing patterns of my designs on ETSY and through a few online retailers) I wanted to get back to being an artist and started painting in 2014. Since I am passionate about animals and volunteer for rescues, painting dogs and cats in acrylic paint on canvas would be my subjects of choice! But I do love to paint all other living creatures as well as a few humans here and there! My approach is to capture the animal’s essence through the look in their eyes. To show their vulnerability and love for their humans. I truly love painting and have so many ideas continuously swirling in my head! I feel I am still learning and growing. I am looking forward to my future to see my progression as being an artist. -Janice Serilla
