murals and more
As an artist we have to make ends meet in many ways for art alone rarely takes care of it all. If you happen to be a single mom artist that becomes a tortuous endeavor. We have to adapt and work harder than most in order to pursue our dreams. My day jobs are: painting homes, anywhere from interior flat walls, trims and more to decorative wall designs and murals, to sculpted stone interior and exterior. I am proud of all my works.
2D mural of Midrex's foundry in Egypt
For this plant we opted to do more of a tromp l'oeil than a 2D mortar due to the intricacy of the factory guts and not anticipating exactly what was required. We had a general idea and luckily we opted to do a tromp vs. a mortar 2D because we ended up having to alter many details on pipes and conveyor belts and add drums to render the idea.

2D rendition of a MiDrex plant
Midrex is an iron pellet manufacturing company, they have plants all over the globe. They wanted a two dimensional rendition of their very first plant in their lunch/teaching room; this is a mix 2D and trompe l'oeil mortar/paint rendition of it.

My oasis - Private beach
a sweet customer, seeking a bit of solace in his own living room, commissioned me to paint a this private beach on his 18' wide, 7' tall den wall. He already had sketches drawn out, and a bullet list of all he wanted on the mural. Here it is. He was ecstatic!
Batman and Robin take the city, a boy's room
Pink Zebra a girls room
a commissioned paint job, this young lady loved pink, this is the color she brought to us and requested the zebra lines, her linens were the same design.
Chirdren's Waiting room at the DA's office
the Charlotte criminal Justice Court room has a waiting room for the children involved in criminal cases. There they wait to be called to testify against their oppressor. They are already terrified and traumatized. The room was a regular room, the DA and the staff felt they could bring a bit of respite or take the children's mind off the upcoming trial by giving them a lovely room to sit and wait. They called on the only artist they knew and she brought her village to create this safe haven for the children in Charlotte.
