One of my favorite places to paint murals is in hospitals and medical centers, especially in pediatric centers. I don’t typically post all of my murals on here since I want my portfolio to focus on floral murals. Still, these other murals are a large part of my practice, and since I don’t have any new flower murals to share this year because of the pandemic, I thought I could share a few commissioned hospital murals. I am so grateful to the health care workers and staff at Penn State Hershey hospital, and I can only hope that my mural and show my gratitude and add a smile to their faces. ( even if a mask hides it) This mural here is supposed to look like a large scale drawing. The theme was Pennsylvania animals.

Agapanthus- In traditional medicine, agapanthus is believed by South African Xhosa tribes to be both medicinal and magical, and it is the plant of fertility and pregnancy. It is used in various medicines taken during pregnancy and is worn by women as a charm to bring strong, healthy babies. I chose this flower for this mural I started for the Maternity Center at UPMC Pinnacle Hospital to bring this good fortune to all the mothers and children born here.
