Public art is my jam!

Who is this beautiful girl ? And what does she have to do with Suicide Prevention?

Creating public art is one of my favorite creative endeavors.

 It's always invigorating and soul filling to get to add art to the wild for all to enjoy!
I've had opportunities to paint all across the Colorado Front Range on many surfaces: walls, sheds, fences, even electric transformer & traffic boxes. Some cities displaying my artwork include Lafayette, Broomfield, Longmont, Fort Collins, Denver and Arvada.

"Don't Worry" mural, 2020. Tif Choate, with Derek Rogers, friend & mural arm model! (art removed in 2023)

I believe that everyone should have access to creative expression and the enjoyment that comes from seeing colorful and interesting art in public places.

Making the Mural

The mural was created by the Alley Art Amazin' artist team including myself, Sarah Spencer and Marissa Saints, as well as artist, Sarah Ortegon. Collaborations are the best!

Each of the illustrations in the letters represent activities and locations special and unique to Lafayette.

Creating the You; Matter mural

It took me 10 days to complete the art. Size: 80' x 8'.

I painted alongside 7 other muralists, all creating art on social awareness issues.

"Asha"

I also ran a funding campaign during its creation and was able to raise $1K for the Rocky Mountain Crisis Hotline.

"The Hand Off"

Located in Lafayette, CO.

Yes, those huge waves in the corrugated metal wall were quite a challenge! This piece is titled, "The Hand Off" and is part of Lafayette's Alley Art Amazin' mural program.

Those bikes are huge!

Public Art Piano? Exactly.

Not all artistic expressions are confined to walls!

This was a great opportunity to paint a piano in Fort Collins, CO with my artistic son, Orion Choate, as part of their engaging 'Pianos about Town' program. With an impressive count of over 100 beautifully adorned pianos, the intersection of music and art brings immense joy!

'My Neighbor Totoro Visits Waneka Lake'

Being a huge admirer of Studio Ghibli and the remarkable talent of Hayao Miyazaki, I can't help but express my love for this mural. It's definitely one of my personal favorites.

I loved creating this mural with my son, ORion.

This was painted to celebrate the wild herd herds of Northwest Colorado that my family and I went to see.
