Welcome to tovaspeter.com!
Welcome to my website! Look around to find more information and images of my paintings on found wood, community mural projects, and more...
In all of my current work (both my wood art and my community mural projects), I hope to share the idea that everything and everyone has an inherent beauty that will shine through when the time is taken to shift to a new perspective.
*Play Me I'm Yours - Street Pianos Boston is back! My piano is now installed outside the Boys and Girls Club of Dorchester at Savin Hill at 1135 Dorchester Ave. It will be out and open for playing through October 10th with a free community event taking place on Sunday October 9 from 3-5 pm. Hope to see you there!
Disclaimer: Bear with me as some of my creations (my two young kids) are not allowing me to update my website as often as I would like....
* I completed painting another piano (my third!) for a festival in Boston. Previous painted pianos were on display in Boston in 2013 and in Newton in May 2016.
* I'm currently working as the artist-in-residence at JRI's Victor School in Acton to facilitate a community mural project. Three more murals are on tap throughout the year at different schools in the region. I'm also working on an intergenerational mural with middle school students and older adults in Framingham, MA.
* Recent projects included a collaborative art installation with older adults in Newton, window displays in two Boston restaurants, facilitated art experiences at the MFA and at a corporate gala event, and more...
