As an artist, I love patterns, repetitive connected themes and patterns. Like potato stamping, I used a bottle to create repeated themes and patterns, through 14 different cards, inspired by people, ideas and experiences at the Change Leadership Institute. The black dot is used throughout each different card, being the only same unchanged symbol throughout all, representing the syllabus of the institute - We all were exposed to the same content which was received, interpreted, processed and ultimately will be used in each of our own unique ways.

Welcome to Hugo
Our first community arts project happened this summer. Our goal was to create something to inspire our community, to give everyone something to look up to and hold our heads with pride about. We are surrounded by a lot of blight and closed businesses, with some people feeling little hope for prosperity.
We partnered with and received support from the Lincoln County Tourism Board and Hugo Improvement Partnership. With the support of Divis Ranch trucking and Ethan Hendricks Equipment, we worked with Some Girls and a Mural to produce this pronominal two sided mural project, revitalizing the face of the Hugo billboard. It was an incredible project with endless traffic honking their encouragement and support, and a continued stream of community members pulling into the driveway or picnicking to watch the progress.
We now love seeing people stopping to get out the car and take a selfie!
