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…
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, 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.

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.

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.
