Customized and Hand-painted Garden Art

 

Items on this page demonstrate my painting skills and ability to transform ordinary every day items into spectacular visual pieces of garden art such as concrete stepping stones, concrete landscape blocks, walkways, patios, fences and any surface that will accept paint.

 

 
A progression of Day of The Dead Catrina wall planter can be found in the Themed Container Plantings section. The original unit was one color throughout - the brownish olive of the man-made composite. Her transformation included the painting of her face in addition to holes being drilled into the sides of her head. This enabled the plantings to resemble a headdress framing her face.

The homeowner of this backyard concrete patio could not tolerate plain gray concrete and had a strong aversion to having real flagstone installed knowing that debris would constantly collect in the mortared joints. The homeowner was also interested in having a very multi-colored surface that would be impossible to achieve with stone. The surface is flush, collecting no debris, and includes almost every color of the rainbow with the exception of pink and purple.
