July 2017 I was invited to be one of 5 artists to paint at the Vans US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach! I was the only female muralist to be commissioned for this incredibly rad annual job. Over a million people come every year to this one week event that hosts competitions for BMX, Surfing and Skateboarding competitions. We were only given three days in the hot sun to complete a large amount of space. IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST EXPERIENCES OF MY LIFE. This whole team was super hard working, supportive, talented and FUN. We all worked so hard together to finish this job and the end results were awesome. We were told that this year was one of the best collective jobs the organizers had ever seen. I was so honored to be a part of this once a year event and would do it again in a heart beat. At one point I had to devise a "rope swing" device to get the hard angles the canvas provided... there were plenty of obstacles this job provided and I wouldn't have had it any other way.
