Conferences convene people who share common interests and allow for the exchange of ideas.  Ideas that have force and value in society should be captured and disseminated.

As an artist, I have done so across four continents through the creation of collaborative Message Murals onsite during conferences and events:   Participants write their conference-related messages on small pieces of paper, which are glued to the background of the mural.   By the conference's end, the group is presented with a mural capturing their collective resolve.  (Please read more about the process or see sample murals).

This finished Message Mural can hang in your head quarters, tour and/or be reproduced as posters or other printed publications. To learn more please see sample contract  or browse through the frequently asked questions.

Please contact me at your convenience, by phone 305-858-1323, or email ( to see if this is something that would help your participants and/or conference goals.  You can learn more about me by reading the artist's profile.
