Standing under Santa Maria dell'Itria, the ancient Sicilian maiolica-roofed bell tower adorned in blue terracotta tiles, octagonal crosses and green leaves. I pick an amaranth flower from a crack in the cobblestone street and give it to my love. The flower smells like radish and rain, a perfect memory of Ragusa that will last always.

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.
