According to Ancona, the beauty of Belize has influenced her work, along with her Christian life on which she reflects in most of her work. At the SPHC, the different artistic creations vary in forms, from acrylic on canvas and murals, to furniture and work on three-dimensional objects. Some of the paintings featured were themed with names such as Belizean Leaves, Purification, Sleeper, Coral Garden, The Colors of You, Roaring like a Lion and even the Simplicity. Most of the pieces are for sale at a special price.Katrina Samuels Ancona Exhibit-1
