Culture Wall Mural- Paypal:

I truly appreciated all your support throughout this project - your awesome attitude as well as art and organizational skills were impeccable. Because of your dedication and hard work, our culture mural was a grand success. From start to finish, you were an incredible partner to work with and we’ll be sure to sing your praises! Also, you were so amazing and accommodating to our every request! Additionally, I was very impressed with how you stayed on-task with such efficiency over the last two weeks - the wall looks fabulous and we will be able to cherish for many years to come. Again, I couldn't have done it without your commitment of time and energy to make this project come alive!

I like to explore,
and paint nature, 
in particular
plants, flowers,
and trees.
I paint the patterns of flora and fauna. I use acrylics to experiment with nature’s bold colors. My art explores things like perspective and movement. more...

Lil Einsteins Academy

Whimsical Garden Mural- Lil’ Einsteins Academy:

I had a blast painting this mural at Lil’ Einsteins Academy.  I enjoyed collaborating on ideas with Lil’ Einsteins.  My inspiration came from many years of exploring nature and gardening.  It’s fun to find the whimsy gardens naturally bring.  I made everything oversize because I wanted to remember what it was like as a kid to explore a leaf or a bug for the first time, and I wanted to bring that same wonder to all ages.
