Garden Party Mural

When I walked into the Greengecko Art Studio 2 months ago I had no idea of the creative journey I was about to go on. Lisa the studio owner and I became fast friends and she encouraged me to paint my very first mural.

Painting the fence has been such a therapeutic way to spend my Wednesday’s. I learnt so much about creating large scale artworks, painting a corrugated fence as well as using exterior paint. Thank you to the patrons of Greengecko Garden Centre for showing interest and all the wonderful conversations that were had. By this fence is where my love for the Griffith Community was born.

Garden Party was painted with this quote in mind: “Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back, and reasons to stay.” Dalai Lama

Special thanks to Lisa Taliano, Di Tarr and my beautiful in-laws Eleanor & John Ronan for helping me and keeping me company throughout the painting process.
