This month I am partnering with the City of Lighthouse Point Parks & Rec department to create 2 murals on the backboard walls of Frank McDonough Park. The newly installed workout equipment and turf donated by James C. Acheson will be surrounded by a nature inspired design as well as the new LHP Recreation logo designed by yours truly. Here are some progress shots…

Norton Museum Women’s Walk

Saturday March 7th was International Women’s Day at the The Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach.  I was among 4 other female chalk artists asked  to recreate a famous work of art by a woman artist. The event took pace along Cranes Nest Way on the south entrance of the museum, with live music and vendors along the street to celebrate the day.

Art Lit 2020

Broward Arts Calendar https://www.artscalendar.com/artlit-2020/

Art Lit 2020, collaboration of arts and literature hosted by Broward County Libraries and the Pompano Beach Cultural Center was a great success this month. 25 chalk artists joined live painters, virtual reality artists, and more at this 3rd annual community event on Saturday, January 11th. I was happy to continue the role of chalk artist coordinator in helping to bring the art of live street painting to the City of Pompano Beach.

Florida Panthers Mural

The underpass at Riverwalk Garage Downtown Ft. Lauderdale just got spruced up with a Florida Panthers themed mural at 150 SE 2nd Street. In just 4 days we scaled this 20 x 34 foot wall on this busy street to help market Broward County’s amazing hockey team. More to come!

Riverwalk Murals & More

I was recently commissioned to spruce up Riverwalk Garage at 150 SE 2nd St downtown Ft Lauderdale this summer with some colorful artwork. Partnering with artist John May, I covered 2 adjoining walls (& ceilings) with colorful stained glass-like fragments of colorful fragments overlapped by origami birds in flight.

As summer winds down, I am preparing to gather some talented Broward teen artists for a September art show “Land + Sea” at Pompano’s historic Sample-McDougald House. Students from St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Coleman School, Cardinal Gibbons and American Heritage will join forces to display works showing the beauty of our land and sea. Opening reception September 15th, 2018.

Free Our Seas Festival

The City of Hollywood hosted a beautiful environmental art festival at the Marine Environmental Education Center right on the beach last Saturday, April 21st. Showcasing local artists, vendors and trash to art projects, the community came out and showed their support by cleaning the beach, planting new sea oats, and raising awareness. Here is the chalk mural I created from 12-5pm next to other installation artists and sculptors.
