Lately I’ve been more and more drawn to mural work. It combines many of the things I enjoy about my art and the work I do with YellowLeaf Design. Plus with experience painting homes commercially through my Dad's contracting business, I can recycle my knowledge for preparing and painting a space that will last for a while.
Murals can share powerful messages or just bring some color into a space. Either way, I think they are an exciting way to show that the community cares about their space and creating a welcoming and joyful environment for its residents and those passing through.
Stay tuned for some updated information on commissioning a mural project for your space.
Highland Goffes Falls Elementary School
One of my first big mural projects was for the elementary school I went to in Manchester, NH. This was designed and painted in 2021 to fit one of their hallways. The design is simple and bold, but incorporates the school's mascot and colors in an engaging way that the teachers and students love. This mural was 12 feet across and used four paint colors and some black to outline the letters. To install this mural I used tracing techniques to transfer the lettering and dogs to the wall.
