earlier studio/gallery work
4th Draft of the New Kensington, PA Community Mural. 30 x 60 feet. It features an interesting mix of past and present images, with hope for the future.
Recent studio work:
Design for an upcoming street art piece called Banded Together, which shows our interconnectedness in the middle of a pandemic. It'll be 10 x 30 feet.
- Finishing up a series of video lessons on my YouTube channel called the
Murals and Movement Workshop. I'm working with amazing Dance Educator Allison Popieski of Attack Theatre on a series of 12 lessons featuring a unique mix of visual art and creative movement projects that were based on ideas and themes from writing and story craft. These were sponsored by ArtsPath at IUP and the PA Council on the Arts. Here's my YouTube channel link:
- Finalizing the design for a 30 x 60 feet community mural in
New Kensington, PA! We had 3 community design meetings via Zoom, and got dozens more comments and input from social media. Over 50 people contributed ideas to the design (seen above). We are now in the process of planning for 2 Community Paint Days this summer of 2020. Stay tuned!
- I recently completed a year-long Teaching Artist Certification course through University of the Arts in Philadelphia, and finished with a 4.0. My cohort for this program was a group of 13 selected teaching artists from across Pennsylvania. We learned so much together about Learning Theory, Child and Adult Development, Professional Practices, and lots more.
- In August, I'll be working with a fellow member of Eastminster Church in Pittsburgh to do a mural for the youth lounge.
