Created with the Steps Initiative and the Port Credit BIA as part of the Main Street Art Challenge. For these designs, I wanted to depict various scenes of nature connected to the local ecology, both past and present. I am currently interested in the composition of patterns and wanted to take motifs from my work and create bight and colourful patterns with them.
These loving strawberries offer a gift of wellbeing to the downtown Barrie community. The strawberry, the first fruit of summer, offers hope and the promise of new possibilities.
The design was inspired through a process of reconnecting with ancestral Ashkenazi Jewish plant medicine. Berries featured prominently in the materia medica of traditional Ashkenazi herbal healers. Art is a healing practice; through my art, I am giving new life to the folk healing practices of my forebears.

Using spray paint and stencils, Mural Routes artist Monica Wickeler painted two black and green figures playing leapfrog. The background is a fantastic display of pinks, blues and yellows that wrap around to the back of the mural.
