Women's Shelter Mural Project

In response to a call for artists, I began painting murals in 2011 at the Carroll County Women's and Children’s Shelter.

Each family that moves into the shelter is assigned a private bedroom. Before there were any murals on the walls, the bedroom doors along the bare hallways all looked alike, and it was difficult for families to find the room where they lived. Also, the ceilings at the shelter have exposed beams and pipes, so they wanted to give the walls in the common areas a cheery, bright atmosphere to draw the eye away from the ceilings.

Additionally, at the request of Human Services Programs of Carroll County, Inc., the Carroll County Public Library collected plastic bottle caps to create a bottle cap mural which I designed and installed in an administrative office at the Women's and Children's Shelter.

If you are available to help design and paint a mural please contact me. This is a great opportunity to gain painting experience, express your personal style, and have your work appreciated by many people. I look forward to working with you!
