Selected Murals



As a full-time professional artist, I have worked in many different arts industries, including working as a Muralist on private and public projects, both indoors and out. Below are a few highlights of the most significant, recent murals that I've painted where I was the sole or lead artist (and in MOST cases, the designer!). Over the course of my career, however, I have worked on/assisted on countless murals for public and private enjoyment. In 2012 I completed the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Training Program and, in addition to my own independent projects, have worked with Mural Arts on several murals as an assistant painter and restoration artist (restoring and repainting murals around Philadelphia). Click here to view some other projects that I have worked on over the years!


This page is really just a teaser, highlighting a few of my more recent or significant murals.

2023

PXL_20231113_170257094.jpg
The World in One Place, 2023. Exterior controller box mural. 69th St. and Marshall Rd. in Upper Darby, PA Approximately 10' x 4' x 2' (360*). Approximately 57 hours on-site.

This project is part of a new mural arts initiative being developed by Upper Darby Township. Inspired by Upper Darby’s motto, “The World in One Place,” my design begins with a background of overlapping shapes and colors loosely inspired by the national flags that reflect Upper Darby’s diverse ethnic and cultural heritages. Unifying the patchwork of this abstract and colorful background are the branches of a white flowering dogwood tree, one of our area’s most beautiful species of native trees. The design celebrates the natural beauty of southeastern Pennsylvania and emphasizes the environmental importance of protecting native species. It also represents the beauty and diversity of people and cultures that have helped to grow, shape, and add character to our community. The painting implies the harmonious balance between the natural environment and those that inhabit and care for it.  Click here for more pictures of this mural.

This mural began in the summer of 2020 and has been added to yearly (most recently, May of 2023, as shown here!).

The mural was painted on the back of the home, two and three stories above ground. Visit my mural portfolio to see how this project has evolved over time.
