Painting Murals in a Girl Scout Cabin!
I am thrilled to share this mural painting timelapse of a mural I painted back in April inside a cabin at the Arizona Girl Scout Camp, the Parsons Leadership Center for Girls & Women at Camp South Mountain. This cabin is one of 12 I painted throughout a year timespan, and the artwork honors Governor Mary Thomas, the first female governor of the Gila River community. It was such an honor to design and paint these pieces to celebrate such a special women and the work she did for her community and for Arizona! The circular piece represents a circle of life from her childhood, through her career, and into her afterlife. I collaborated with both the Gila River Community and the Arizona Girl Scouts to get this piece just right! We aimed for it to honor Mary while also being fun, colorful, and approachable for young girls. The wave border throughout the bathroom is also very special, as it is very symbolic to Native American culture. Thank you to the Arizona Gil Scouts, Parsons Leadership Center for Girls & Women at Camp South Mountain, the Thomas family, and the Gila River Community to honor Mary’s legacy.
