In December 2018 I was a chosen artist for Colony Square’s annual Festivity + Trees project, only instead of painting a tree, I painted an 8’X8’ barricade mural! These murals lined the construction area of Colony Square during their renovations, adding some color and beauty to the temporary space. The prompt for the mural was open as long as it was festive, so I wanted to do my signature lettering with an inspiring phrase for the holiday season. I completed the look with holly and berries of course!
Stacks Squares Mural
I was chosen to participate in the third round of the Stacks Squares mural project! I was one of ten artists selected to paint a 7'x7' mural in Cabbagetown on Carroll St. My piece was called ‘GRRRL POWER’ and I wanted to highlight what was going on in the news at the time with so many men being called out for abuses of power. I wanted to remind women that we are powerful creatures, just like the tiger depicted in my mural.
The goal of this project is to involve neighborhood artists, creating stronger bonds between between the diverse City of Atlanta neighborhoods of Cabbagetown, Reynoldstown, and Old 4th Ward. We are currently seeking paint donations, and raising money for artist stipends. For more information, please visit: https://www.gofundme.com/stackssquares
Old Fourth Ward Power Box
I was so honored to be chosen by the Fourth Ward Alliance Board to be a participating artist in the Old Fourth Ward Power Box Beautification project. My design was chosen along with 18 other artists to cover boxes throughout the neighborhood. For my design I wanted to create something that celebrates the neighborhood and told you proudly where you are. I lettered the name of the neighborhood onto each side and combined it with stylized flowers and leaves to emphasize the beauty and nature in the Old Fourth Ward.
Take yourself on your own walking tour of the neighborhood and see all 19 boxes on the map here.
Look Up Decatur
The next time you’re in Decatur, GA don’t forget to Look Up! I participated in the third round of #LookUpDecatur where local artists were asked to paint street signs and have them hung high on poles for people to discover. The goal is to get people off of their phones and encourage them to look around at their surroundings, especially the art. I wanted to incorporate more florals and lettering into my piece, so I painted the word FREE with flowers spiraling up vines and around the letters. To me it symbolizes that we cannot control nature, and that it will find a way to be free without us, often growing in unexpected places.
I got the chance to participate in the first Smyrna Art Stroll and makeover a recycling bin live at the event. The goal was to encourage recycling by beautifying the cans and the city. I wanted to emphasize the reason why people should recycle and remind them to love the planet because it’s our only home. I painted the can to look like the earth and then hand lettered phrases on it in white. It was so fun much being part of the event and painting as people walked past!
