BBC Article About Tetrachromacy is Promoting Beauty in the World

I have always known that I see the world a little differently. It has been my plan all along to cultivate my career as an artist to share the beauty I see in the world. It is more exciting than ever to learn about the genetic origins of my special supervision and have a new perspective to share about my perspective! The BBC article about Tetrachromacy and me specifically as a Tetrachromat is as much an honor as it is insightful.

When I realized the colours I see so vividly are invisible to others it was a life changing moment. A mix of thoughts and feelings embraced me as I pondered the possibilities of other peoples’ realities. I think of my daughter who by a twist of fate is color blind and I am inspired to find a way to express visual beauty in a way she can enjoy.

It is my dream to develop a training system to help all tetrachromatic children realize their potential and I am so happy the BBC wrote an inspired article to share this vision. I think the opportunity to promote unity and peace by admiring different sensory capabilities is a beautiful part of joining this conversation on a global news network like the BBC.

The Super Vision Soiree Was Amazing

I had such a great time with all of my friends, collectors, and VIP’s on Friday Night! It was truly an honor that you all came and saw my newest collection and listened about the research done by Dr. Kimberly Jameson of UC Irvine on my Tetrachromacy.

Here are some of the works that I debuted:

My dear friend even purchased my beloved Skyline Painting of San Diego:

Who’s a Pretty Cockie?

“Who’s a Pretty Cockie?”, 18×24

Completed in just 2 hours and 6 minutes, “Who’s a Pretty Cockie?” is a perfect example of Concetta’s ability to masterfully sculpt beauty with a paintbrush in minutes.
