Murals

In the spring of 2011, Harrisburg's Uptown Food Market management contacted myself and painter friend Allison Mushalko to commission an 11 x 70 foot sized mural for the 3rd Street side of the grocery store.  We jumped on the opportunity, researching painting processes, mural supplies, and installation techniques from other mural programs and professionals.  Completing the mural in a short month and a half, we learned a lot about mural work, and were very proud of our efforts.  The community loved the outcome, and the mural lasted a few years before the building changed ownership.

Allison and I continued our own separate mural making in the areas we lived (she was commuting and working remotely on pieces for the Uptown Food Market mural).  I also created a fun community mural during Kipona Arts Festival on the Riverfront in Harrisburg over Memorial Day 2011. My favorite mural project so far has been a 7 year old's bedroom--complete with sharks, coral, and seaweed (and he even  helped!).  A tremendous honor was creating murals for The Bridges at Bent Creek Senior Living Community in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.
