Since then she has painted several murals all over the city and is currently painting the Tulane University Freeman School of Business. Despite Coivd19, her goal for 2020 still remains to paint a mural that changes the skyline of the Big Easy!
This 1,000 square foot geometric mural lives on New Orleanian automotive shop, Crescent City. Located at 4619 Magazine Street, the mural faces the an abandoned church across the street, it's stained glass windows providing the inspiration for design. The colors were pulled directly from the surrounding community - The Bead Shop, La Boulangerie, a flower shop and Free to Be Power Yoga. If you pass by the shop, say hi to Kevin, Bryce, Sean, Paul and Wendy!
This concept was created for the newest New Orleans cafe, Drink Beauty. Cloudscape I is located inside a light pink shotgun house with black and white striped floors . Head to 3424 Magazine street, grab a turmeric latte and snap a pic in front of these bubble gum clouds.
Miss Hein teamed up with the awesome folks at the Southern Food and Beverage Museum on OC Haley for a unique challenge - to recreate a famous George Rodrigue painting for an exhibit honoring the 40th Annual Junior League Cookbook and the women it featured. The mural is now the backdrop to life size portraits of the female chefs and swampy facade for the podcast studio of New Orlean's own, Poppy Tooker!
Formally know as the Royal Crescent Hotel, across the street from the International House, lives the newly renovated Magnolia Hotel. The hotel is home to a new bar and restaurant called Laurel Oak Southern Brasserie set to open in February 2020. The mural is a rich, symmetrical collage of flora and fauna inspired by the artists’ recent summer coursework earning their Master Gardner certification.
