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.


Upcoming Events:

 Stay tuned....
