Pompano Beach Recycled Art!

We are getting ready to create our traveling bottle cap mural “Catch the Wave” for this summer’s recycled community art initiative! Hola Mundo Beach campers will join together to attach plastic bottle caps onto wood panels, forming a long interconnected wave mosaic. We will drill the caps into place right on the beach & install in 2 cities starting this summer! Stay tuned for more…

Coral Springs Traffic Box Wraps

My pastel piece “Facets of Freedom” has been selected by the City of Coral Springs to be wrapped around traffic utility boxes around the city for a public art install! The piece will be printed and vinyl wrapped along Sample and Coral Springs Drive next month. This original portrait was created for the Pompano art exhibit “Loosed” inside Blooming Bean Cafe at BaCA last April and represents seeing the world and its potential for beauty with refined vision and hope. It is my delight to add my touch of color and light to the beautiful and vibrant town of Coral Springs.
