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.
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. VIDEO: The Making of My Street Piano 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 Anchor Academy in Middleboro (after having completed one at the Victor School in Acton) to facilitate a community mural project. Two 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...
