Artist Statement: 

The success of my community murals and creative placemaking partnerships occur when exploring new artistic strategies through community dialogue, social activism, and partnerships with outside agencies such as: city/county cultural facilities, non profit/for profit agencies, civic institutions, and public/private schools. 


The community artist is "civically engaged" through partnerships in the understanding and celebrations of cultural diversity, socioeconomic concerns, conflict resolution, celebration of past histories, current events shaping individual communities, and the hopes for a productive and sustainable future. 


The outcomes of community murals and placemaking projects are about 'shared experiences' which empower individuals and/or communities at-large to make positive choices, fostering tolerance and respect. These relationships promote a positive outlet for artistic expression, community dialogue, access to social services, reduction of negative behavior, and life-skill experiences through the arts.
