Full Speed Ahead! Oh wait, life is in the way…

It seems throughout my art career whenever I felt like I was building momentum, whenever all the cards finally felt like they were stacking up in my favor, abruptly and out of nowhere I’d get hit with something that would stop me in my tracks. Never a simple something, but a life changing, perhaps you’ll never get back on track something.

I find that when these things called life happen, it’s then I discover within myself hidden reserves of courage and resilience I didn’t even know I had. I come to realize these things don’t have to weaken you, they can actually strengthen you, and I know that I have no choice but to become more determined than I’ve been, more courageous, greater in spirit and to have an even brighter, larger overall outlook.

My favorite quote has always been, “There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
– Anaïs Nin

It’s really what is at the core of this project.

We should all be noticed, and each girl should have the opportunity to blossom.

Girl Noticed

A series of detailed photorealistic charcoal portraits created as large exterior murals by artist Lori Pratico depicting a diverse group of girls and women of all ages. Each mural will depict one individual in charcoal which will fade away over time. Depending on weather conditions, murals can last days, weeks or months. This representing the intention of the project, which is: “If gone unnoticed, all what was there may fade away, disappear, and never be seen.”
