Rosie by Cecilia Garza

Sea Turtle Location: South Padre Island Birding, Nature Center & Alligator Sanctuary

Rosie represents relaxation and appreciating life along with all our blessings. We are so consumed with the negativity in this world, we forget to stop and smell the roses. Enjoy the little things, enjoy life!


After a period of 45 to 55 days, hatchlings emerge from the nest cavities and Sea Turtle, Inc. safely release them to the Gulf of Mexico under moonlight and away from city lights.

Meet the Artist

Cecilia Garza was born and raised in South Texas, specifically McAllen. She is a self-taught artist/maker, who has always had a passion for creating.

Her work is created to inspire creativity, love, compassion, and encouragement, not only within our individual-selves, but also in the world around us. Cecilia is inspired by her amazing family and friends that surround her, along with the individuals she meets in everyday experiences and interactions.

She sees art as a story teller, and as a time machine into the past and a wish for the future. It’s a universal language that allows everyone to connect from worlds apart. Art invokes emotion and can help us to have empathy, love, and understanding.
