I was honored to be selected as one of the artists to paint a piano for Your Keys to the City in the summer of 2018. This bright beauty was painted live on the Mall in one day, and remained in Downtown Denver on 16th Street -free for anyone to play- through October. Truly one of the most rewarding experiences of my art career!!!
