Of all the work that I have the pleasure of doing, when I create a mural, I am in my element. The size and scope of a mural draws me in and at a certain point, I feel like I am in the scene. It is strange to describe, but I actually feel like I am present in the picture I am painting.
I have done many murals over the years, some I have kept record of and some, unfortunately I did not take any photos of. It could be that when I started painting murals, I was pretty young and did not see the importance of documenting them for future reference. Whatever the case may be, I have below a few examples of some of my murals.
My project at Hope & Home is an ongoing adventure in creativity and discovery. I am truly blessed to able to create an environment of peace and inspiration for these children and families. Everyday I learn something new as I paint and create. I am striving hone my skills with every section of this building. Sometimes I find myself going back to areas that I once considered finished a few years ago and updating its look.
This project will end soon, and it will be a bittersweet end to a project that is a part of me. This project may be my legacy that I hope will be enjoyed by many staff, children and families for years to come.
Below are some examples of some areas of the building, some finished, some still incomplete.
