Cover Artist Rhonda Saunders

Inside Arden December 2023

“In 2018, my youngest daughter Ajia was in a terrible car accident that led to two brain surgeries and, consequently, a shaved head. I wanted to take a traumatizing moment and turn it into a more positive perspective by having her pose with those flowers covering her shaved head. This picture represents a celebration of recovery and health instead of a dark memory.” Shown: “Aija,” color pencil, 12 inches by 24 inches, part of a private collection. This piece was awarded a 2023 Inside Publisher’s Award in the California State Fair Fine Arts Competition. Visit @ rhonddasaunders on Instagram or call or text (769) 929-9254.
