Panel before

Artist Statement
I’m grateful I was able to participate in this project despite being not being a painter. Having my knit and felted panel be a part of this mural is great – I love seeing art and craft melding together. The panel’s design is inspired by three graffiti artists and the work they did for a piece that hangs in Mount Royal’s West Gate.
