Starting off my very first blog post with a trip down memory lane. It was the day I decided to turn my sister’s basement into one giant painted mess! I put together a small art class with my two nieces and nephew. All I remember was the music playing, my sister’s huge, 1-year old Weimaraner running in and stepping in all the paint, and gradually everything became messier, louder but SO MUCH FUN!!!
I remember this day so well because it is daily reminder why I love what I do and why I began Mural Mural on the Wall.
#1: Kids usually tend to think I’m their age and want to paint along with me. So why not?!? lol
#2: Nothing puts a bigger smile on my face when I am able to create a concept design that totally reflects a child’s wild imagination, and even better, making it come to life on their walls!
My nieces and nephew inspired me to listen to my gut and choose to make a career out of what I love and know to do best…illustrate cartoons! Looking back at this picture I see how far I’ve come to where I am today, and how many whimsical murals and illustrations have been created along with me in this journey ☺
