BIG ART for public places are created for space shared by the interaction of a diversity of people in daily life.

Acrylic Mosaic is a technique that can invite participants. When participation is embraced by public studio or workshops, a sense of community ownership moves in. 

 

The creation of each project involves the community for which it is created in some way. Circle-painting workshops have involved 100's of participants in hands-on connections towards the creation of honorariums and memorials.

THEMATIC MURALS

Beach Room,Warsaw, Indiana
 

On the side--
Thematic room murals bring a lot of smiles. While I create art for commissions and self-expression for myself, it has been one of my greatest joys to bring 380-degrees of ART into my children's rooms, friends, and friends-of-friends homes.

 

One of the standing jokes in our house when a new friend comes over is to say, "We have a pet iguaneleon...wanna see it?" (my daughter couldn't decide if she wanted an iguana or a chameleon painted) ...and 3 dolphins, 3 parrots and a hermit crab...

 

Creativity for an artist works best when it flows into the lives of others. If you are an artist and reading this... Give.
     
Share YOUR talents. 
What cause are you passionate about? How can you use your talents to draw awareness or help others? 
Spread the spirit of creativity!
