Dyna Beach

Dyna Beach is a painter and illustrator born and raised in the Bay Area and currently residing in Marin County. She holds a BFA from the Academy of Art with a focus in Illustration. Painting and creating has always been a natural way for her to get her thoughts out on paper and relax. Most of her inspiration comes from places and people she loves, food, nature, and her English Bulldog. She enjoys using different materials to keep her workflow fluid and avoid any dreaded artist’s block. You might find her drawing on her iPad, sketchbook, or tablet, or painting with acrylic, but watercolor is her true love.

Hearts in San Francisco Project

The Hearts in San Francisco project debuted in 2004 with 131 heart sculptures, created by local Bay Area artists and auctioned by the Foundation in support of Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center.

The Foundation raised nearly 3 million dollars for ZSFG in that first year. Today, we carry on this tradition by commissioning and auctioning a new set of hearts each year. The funds raised support those delivering on the promise of accessible and equitable health care for all in our city.
