I have been so blessed to paint for many Trader Joe’s throughout California and Nevada. As a big fan of the Trader Joe’s myself, it was like magic creating a hand painted mural for TJ’s.
In 2008, Trader Joe’s made a change to their stores where they wanted to bring the local scenes, landscapes, landmarks, and history in the way of mural painting to each city in each store.
I had the opportunity to look into every city and learn what they are known for. Then would collaborate with the store managers and workers to come up with some special designs for each store. The stores I got to paint were Modesto, Elk Grove, Sacramento, Chico, Reno NV, and Carson City NV
