The Hummingbird & The Violin

20th of November 2020

The Hummingbird & The Violin

         I was commissioned by the amazing Ellen Troyer, a violinist with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, to incorporate nature and music on this planter box, those being some of her favorite things. I did some research and found one of her favorite songs to play and put that into the background. Using spray paint and stencils I went to the streets of Towson, MD to bring some art to their landscape. In front of the newly renovated The Recher, check out this planter box on your stroll through town. 

        I would like to say thank you to the Towson Creative Partnership for having me be a part of the Boxes & Bloom planter box project along with the other female artists.

If you are interested in sponsoring a box or commissioning an artist to paint a planter box in Towson please reach out to the Towson Creative Partnership.
