Always mixing. Always pink. 💓 ...

Painting dogs all day like it’s my job … it is! 🥰 @morrisanimalrefuge ...

I think she’s jealous I didn’t start her portrait first 🐶 ...

Rolled out some ghost prints of a newbie mural to show Tula all of her new furry friends.

Ghost prints are a light, faded image of your mural design printed directly onto parachute cloth to help you map out the mural so you can skip the projector and not have to waste time winging it.

Can’t wait to start painting this one for @morrisanimalrefuge - we are pumped! 🐶🐱

When you’re working on a traditional sized painting, but you’re a muralist, so this is the smallest brush you have (and can handle) 🤦🏻‍♀️

That’s a wrap! #netrality ...

When an expressive, abstract design becomes calculated and monotonous… and Tula reminds me I haven’t pet her in the last 5 minutes. Lawwwwd, help me. ...

Last one of the year ...

Oops, never posted a final clean shot of this mini mural for Morgantown, WV. I don’t always release statements about a work (or title them 😂) but I was asked to sit down and write a little something:

‘Trusting The Mystery’

I always find inspiration from the sea and nature. The very essence of our humanness is tied to our connections and cycles within the natural world. In the mural, Trusting The Mystery, the artwork is encased in a perfect circle to signify wholeness and continuous cycles. Branching out from the circle is a rainbow that transforms into abstracted local West Virginia wildflowers.

Symbolically, the fierce sea water depicts the turbulence in our lives and brings forth the question, how do we swim? Rainbows, pink, and purple clouds create the kind of dreamlike beauty that flood you with euphoria. The idea of a pink cloud is meant to represent the changes in your life that can bring you to a place where the struggle is nonexistent, and everything is a little too good to be true. Pink smoke suggests acknowledgement of a higher power, self-renewal, and coming out the other side.

The owl, one of the most mystical creatures, said to bring good omens, free us from things that hold us back, encourage change, growth, transformation, and intuitive development. Owls make regular appearances in my artwork, as I love their symbolism and the magical narrative they bring.

Trusting The Mystery is the spirit inside ourselves that call us to follow the path of our own colors and our own lives to come to a metaphoric field of flowers.

Really craving Summer mural fashion right now. This snow bunny bundle season ain’t my jam. #throwback #phillyaidsthrift ...

Gorgeous light on this little bb ...

No, I didn’t paint this on the floor of my hotel room the morning of my install 😬 ...

Wasn’t sure how I was going to install a single 10’ panel alone with a ladder on a down sloped street (after driving 5 hours) … but I knew I could, and I did 👏 Next time I will pull the Mariah Carey diva card, or at least take a break between driving and climbing ladders. ...

Pop up studio with @burnoutjewelry ...

Work in progress from the other week🦉 🌈 getting installed today! ...

@phoebebridgers is back in the studio working on a new album. She may even write a song called ‘Tula’ 😂 🎃 🩻 ☠️ Happy Halloween 👻 🖤

@tulathegreat as Phoebe Bridgers
...

The look of judgement from your artist assistant when your studio becomes a hazardous work zone 😬 ⚠️ Sorry, Tula @tulathegreat

Nevermind the 4 glasses of old beverages on the desk and the fact that my calendar is still on April 🤦🏻‍♀️
