The mural represents awareness of our environment and the ocean. Entitled “She Who Sees,” it's inspired by the spiritual heritage of the Chumash Indians who are indigenous to what is now Malibu and Santa Monica. The woman in the center looks back at us with knowledge of the past. The Chumash was a matriarchal society, meaning their lineage was traced from the mother’s side of the family. The woman also is a symbol of mother earth. The roots that are apart of her hair represent the spiritual and mental connection with nature as well as showing the roots from where we came from. 

Risks and challenges

"Dogtown" as locals affectionately call the neighborhood where the mural is located is a unique and special place I call my home. In the past three years, I've had to handle many obstacles including heat, major construction, summer crowds, a busy bus stop, graffiti taggers as well as over-served partiers from nearby bars who have been wild and rambunctious...

And I've loved every minute of it!

This mural is a vital part of the community and my life. No obstacle will come between me and its completion.
