I am an artist with over 30 yrs of experience. Have done various mediums of art from sculptures, airbrushing, faux finishing, hand painted and mosaic murals, designed jewelry, 3D collages, drawings and painted visual symphonies. I was classically trained through anatomy by George Sotos at the drawing workshop in Chicago for 15 + years. Educated in the Munsell color system. My approach to murals has been through research, interview and immersion of the community in which the installation will take place.

Community Activity Information

I find it is important to include the input of the community in which the public work will be located. Taking into account the fabric of the community is pivotal. The art should truly be representative of the cause/message that each community relates to. Each project gives me the opportunity to learn about the culture in the community. Including local artists I think is key to any community art installation, as well as, including local residents to participate and learn in the process.

Educational Activity Information

Would create a workshop to select participants, concept and execution. This would include narrowing down subject matter, timeline, needed materials, inspection of site of art installation and budget. Would then create groups that would be matched to their strengths and potential.

Program Fee

Price is minimal $35 an hour. Materials not included.
