Monet’s Garden

 Monet’s Garden, Acrylic, 14ft x 20ft

Designing therapeutic environments incorporates the aesthetic, physical and emotional needs of the residents as well as space dynamics and function. Murals improve quality of life by utilizing color, sounds, textures, light and movement. They can soothe, be interactive or stimulate the senses. This mural was created for an Alzheimer’s and Dementia unit at a long-term care facility in the Bronx, NY. The soft blues andgreens were chosen to provide a visually calming image. Residents assisted in its creation and the finishing touches were added to create a work of art.
