Welcome to the Artistic Murals :
"Treasured Memories Of New Port Richey"
This title is dedicated to special the visitors and citizens of New Port Richey.
I am honored to have won this commission and I loved painting the mural!
The mural depicts the City Of New Port Richey during the 1920s. All buildings in this mural actually existed, only not necessarily on this main street. I used my artistic license to create a street of my own full of historic buildings that were important during the 1920s.

I am proud to say that I have finished creating my first Government Commission; an honor that I won after
competing in a national search that the City Of New Port Richey’s Art Council conducted to find the “perfect artist”
to create their first public mural. For this honor, I promised to give the city my sincere effort in creating a scene
that reflects the genre of New Port Richey in the 1920’s. Now that the wall is completed, it is my sincere hope
that the New Port Richey Art Council Members, City Council Members, Citizens, Visitors and Mr. & Mrs. Karl,
(owners of The Karl Reef) are pleased with the end result. I have immensely enjoyed painting for you!
God bless you and your loved ones,
