In the Province of Ragusa, Sicily, Italy, stands The Duomo of San Giorgio. The cathedral stands under the Sicilian sky dreaming of the soft colors that so welcomed my a soul. Blue olive trees shade the hillside for birds and butterflies. The majestic limestone walls shelter those walking the cobblestone streets of mercy. I cannot say what miracles have come and gone, but I will always remember that lovely Sunday morning in Modica, when the city sang to me a sweet song of Italian love.

Getting to Know Seth

Seth’s life and art career are anything but normal. As a teenager, he left an abusive home and put himself through high school. After graduation, he made his way to California, where the noted painter Tom X took him under his wing. Then, in 2004, Seth put down his brushes for almost six years to focus on a biotech career. It wasn’t until he reunited with his grandmother after nearly 20 years apart that he considered painting full-time. She was a recognized artist and continuously encouraged him to paint. When she passed away just three years after they reunited, Seth decided to pursue his dream. He moved north and built an art studio. Today, he is one of UGallery’s top creators.
