Apprentices from the Pour Your Art Out (PYAO) workshop transfer the White Oak mural design onto the parachute cloth at Bella Faccio studio in Takoma Park (top) while others prime the long lengths of cloth with rollers.
Apprentices roll primer on the 5' sections on parachute cloth, being careful not to wrinkle or fold the fabric. We have this week to cut, prime, draw and paint the first 12 sections of the first third of the 90' mural for the White Oak Community Recreation Center in Montgomery County.
I see myself as a visual storyteller. My narrative mixed media art explores the interaction of words, symbols, and imagery in my art making. My craving for the tactile keeps me bound in traditional printmaking and painting— however, my interest in new technologies has pushed me to explore digital processes and the marriage of the two.
