Public Art Philosophy

“Public art should inspire and bring different sensibilities together. Even a graphic depiction should have underpinnings in a strong concept. The idea can be abstracted to the point that it is more design than actual representation. But, still the essential message comes through the shapes, the color and a dance of light.” –Annette Coleman on public art

  1. Hi, your work is absolutely beautiful! We are raising money to build an inclusive playground at Stanley Marketplace http://www.lubirdslight.org and we are close to reaching our goal. I would love to incorporate some tile elements to add color and sensory visuals to the playground for all the kids. Would you be interested in hearing more about the project? I would love to connect about options. Thank you!

    1. Hi Jeliet, I just saw your message about the playground at Stanley. If you are still developing the project please give me a call 303-941-8887. All the best, Annette
