In Person

As told to C.B. Lieber

Hi kids! Nice to meet you. I’m an artist and I love to paint, especially on walls! I’ve been painting ever since I was small. I even have a picture of my twin sister and me painting white clouds on an orange wall when we were about six. To my mind, blank walls mean they need a painting on them.

I’ve been painting walls professionally for about 25 years. I started when someone asked me to paint her bedroom wall — she bought sheets and I painted a matching design. Over the years, I’ve painted pediatricians’ offices, schools, kindergartens, and homes. I love the creative process and the mental stretch I need to paint on walls. I even created a business with a friend once, called “The Walls Can Teach.” We’d draw a design on the wall in a school and then the kids would fill it in, kind of like a paint by number!
