I worked with Robert Fulton Elementary School in San Diego to bring their ideas, concepts and themes to life.


I specialize in brining my clients ideas to life in the form of large scale commissioned murals. The goal of this mural was to have a profound impact on the community and bring students and faculty together. My goal was to share my love and passion for art with the community and in the process inspiring many young students to follow their dreams.

I believe that the cultivation of smart, skilled, conceptually rich and beautiful art is essential for the health and development of individuals and communities.


The first step in my process is to work with my client to figure out their goals and concepts for the project. Second, I create 2-3 designs, keeping in mind the clients goals while including my own artistic ideas. I then work with my client to refine and perfect the design. I then prepare blue prints to scale and mathematically layout the design. The last step is to clean, prime then paint the mural covering it with a protective, anti-grafiti ensuring a long lasting beautiful mural.
