Hope for Georgia Bus — Left side wide view

I led this project, and completed it with the other four artist members of Living Melody Collective for Liliana Bakhtiari to paint a 36 ft. school bus to mobilize the vote in Georgia. Designed as a voting inspiration machine, this mural was a complete automotive grade quality paint job executed through a combination of airbrush techniques and hand painting.

Hope for Georgia Bus — Right side wide view   In response to voter machine concerns, and voter suppression tactics, Living Melody Collective drew inspiration from the history of voting rights and trace the changes in the voting systems through history from paper ballot to our current electronic system.

Lo Que Hereda No Se Hurta — A Mural that I assisted Jessica Caldas with.

Lo Que Hereda No Se Hurta mural was done during Forward Warrior 2018 and measures about 25 feet tall. Jessica Caldas is the lead artist, and Krista Jones and I assisted her in the creation of this piece. about the separations of families at detention centers. It features portraits of three artist-mothers including myself, Jessica and Angela Davis Johnson. They are on top of a wallpaper pattern that morphs into chain link fence.

For my role in the creation of this piece, I painted the lettering on the top half of piece, the hot pink and one of the mother-child pairs.

Portion of Lo Que Hereda No Se Hurta painted solely by me from beginning to end.

Live the Legacy II — at the Center for Civil and Human Rights   Live the Legacy II is a 8’ x 32’ mixed media mural created for the Center for Civil and Human rights. An equal collaboration between all the five members of Living Melody Collective artists (Angela Bortone, Jessica Caldas, Angela Davis Johnson, Danielle Deadwyler and Haylee Anne). The piece is heavily textured, sculptural and layered literally and thematically.  The piece explores King’s fluid focus in his later years of exploring housing affordablity, homeless and human rights. Live the Legacy II connects Atlanta’s history with Dr. King to the current housing affordability crisis and rampant gentrification as well as the displacement of homeless people from Peachtree Pines.
