Projects and Initiatives

ELEVATE YOUR SPACE – DIRECTOR, DESIGNER, ARTIST

2019-2020

Elevate your Space is an ongoing public indoor mural project that serves to educate, incorporate and facilitate public creativity and connection to space.  Over 50 non-artists participated in the design and execution of a 500 square foot mural.  Participants were asked to compile images of a transformative space that they have encountered in their travels or daily lives.  The execution involved senior students within SoCA and the education department at the University of Windsor. Most importantly the general public became artists and critics and it was an overwhelming success.  (PLEASE SEE THE TIMELAPSE VIDEO IN “ Projects”)
