Art on Traffic Signal Boxes

In Ballarat Victoria, Australia, I have been chosen as an artist to design and paint a mural on a traffic signal box (TSB). Also as a part of the job, I am to mentor a community group (eg: school children) on a second TSB. I am excited about the project and can’t wait to get started. This project is with the Ballarat City Council, Urban Smart and Vic Roads

I may also be painting some TSB’s in Coburg, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. I have been told to come up with some designs for the boxes.

These are examples of murals painted on traffic signal boxes:

My sketchbook appears in The Sketchbook Project Submission video

Late last month I posted off my completed sketchbook to the Brooklyn Art Library (Art House Co-Op) in New York and once the library received my book they sent me an email to say that my parcel had arrived to New York safely. What a relief!…

About a week later I recieve another email from the Art House Co-Op requesting me to view a video the library had uploaded to Youtube. It was a video of all the latest submissions that the library had recently recieved. As I sat watching the video with my husband Andrew, he quickly spots (@ 0:20) my sketchbook being held up by one of the staff members during the recording. Even though my sketchbook was only shown for 2 seconds, it was still exciting to see it on camera. Unfortunately I never got the chance scan my sketchbook fully (except for the front

The Sketchbook Project 2012

This is the sketchbook I received today from the USA…now I gotta start doing some drawings on the cover and inside! The theme is: ‘Things found under car seats’.

Once the book is finished, I’ll post it back to Brooklyn, NY and it will become a permanent book of their artists’ library. The library that’ll have my sketchbook and other artist’s books will be touring around some parts of the US, then Melbourne, Australia and London, UK, then back to Brooklyn. If you are in any of these areas, please go have a look.

The Sketchbook Project 2012

As I’m working on this project, I will upload the artworks as I’m going along :)
