The Angel Fresco Project
My studies and artistic work have brought me into direct contact with people and frescoes from around the globe and a realization that regardless of culture, we all have the same basic needs, desires and goals. My current project is a pivotal progression in my career to communicate those ideas and images that have had a positive impact on me and share them with a large and continuing audience. For several years I have wanted to create a public space that could bring attention to the buon fresco medium while creating a lasting public space of uplifting beauty and solace for all people. This project is the realization of that dream.
The Fresco Project is re-purposing a vacant, historical building to paint one of the largest public buon fresco murals in the United States. The fresco mural will consist of scenes of multi cultural angels painted on the ceiling and will cover a total of 3,000 square feet. The objective is to create an environment for the preservation and advancement of this ancient, endangered art form while making a positive contribution to humanity that will last for many generations. The Fresco Project is unprecedented in the United States and is the largest fresco mural in world history to be painted by women.
This project is my passion. It is the pinnacle of my career achievements and aspirations. The Project is giving the opportunity for several other fresco artists to join in on this journey and that is an incredible joy for me. I have worked continuously over the last 4 years to bring the fresco project to where it is today. Now I need your help to bring it to fruition. You are the one who can make this historical mural possible. I can’t do this without you. Please help bring this dream into reality.
