Mural at Mt. Carmel High School, 2017

This 9 ft by 7 ft mural is on the wall of a High School’s Engineering Lab. Where most schools push a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) initiative to propel students into more “successful” careers, Mt. Carmel High School is working towards a more integrated approach: the STEAM program. Adding art to the long-standing narrative is something that I’m very passionate about, fueling me to paint an eye that is inclusive of all passions, bringing light to young artists and their ability to thrive in academic communities.
