Artist Statement: 

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

The community artist is "civically engaged" through partnerships in the understanding and awareness of cultural diversity, socioeconomic concerns, conflict resolution, celebration of past histories, underrepresented/marginalized communities, and indigenous stewardship. 

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