In the summer of 2011 i was hired to work with the Milwaukee Public Theatre and their annual All-City-Peoples Parade. Working with other talented artists this is what we made.

After days Of thinking how to make hundreds of feathers for this huge puppet. I did some researching on indigenous materials such as corn husks, corn, banana leaf, things i was familiar with. I dyed some corn husks and the store bought dye held well on the corn husks. It was bright enough. Then I layered on acrylic paints and gold spray paint.

The first piece I made dedicated to the 43 students is a painting with small crosses I made of wood with acrylic flowers. Framed in antique frame.
