By showing images larger than human scale, murals challenge our perception of space.
I started painting murals in schools as a teaching artist. In the early 90s, my work as a muralist grew in partnership with my husband, artist Jorge Villegas. We then painted murals for banks, cities, and churches. Some of these murals turned to be more than 100-Feet long by 28-Feet high.
Working on murals has been very rewarding in many ways.
While the process of designing, and painting a mural involves intellectual and physical work, the impact of an image on a public wall reaches a vast audience with a transformative experience. For the individual viewer who then re-creates the story, the event becomes personal and intimate beyond any possible expectation.
This is a selection of some of the murals painted in public places.
