I make energetic, textural murals using acrylic, house paint, and sometimes non-traditional media like found objects. My style has been described as a contemporary take on Figurative Expressionism, infused with motifs from Magical Realism, the New York City graffiti scene, and folk art. Though my subjects vary, I especially love animals, folk tales, history, and feminist themes. All of my work is hand-done by me; I do not use stencils or hire assistants.
In December 2020, I completed a 10-mural commission in Sheepshead Bay (Brooklyn, NY) and a 7-mural commission in Canarsie (Brooklyn, NY) in February 2021. View photos here:

I'm currently available for commissions. I will consider private and commercial work, as well as work in schools and non-profits. This may include group homes, nurseries, stores, restaurants, and other spaces.
At this time, I am only booking work in the New York City area and in locations where COVID-19 health and safety guidelines can and will be observed.
Read my mural protocol and contact me to discuss a commission. If you wish to subsidize a mural made for an individual with a developmental or intellectual disability living in a group home, I accept donations via Venmo @artistcstoddard and PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org. For large donations, contact me.
All photo documentation of my murals was completed by Brooklyn-based photographer Shawn Inglima.
Below is a video I made for Authority Magazine about 5 things I wish I knew before I made my first mural; it also ran in Thrive Global.
