AMD pc build recommendations. $1500 budget

So my housemate wants to do a ryzen build.
She's an artist and will be using this with a trackpad, photo and video editing, and some gaming.
She won't be doing anything too graphic intensive so she won't need a high end gpu.
$1500-ish budget for a pc and 27'' monitor with no peripherals.
Appreciate the suggestions!

You are welcome. Frankly, not knowing as much about her use case this cpu might be more than enuf.

Opted for the X500 series board just in case an upgrade to Ryzen 4000 is ever needed.
