Her mural design for CF is largely inspired by spring — when London thaws and transforms. “I really wanted to create a piece that depicted this beautiful time of year, the hope that spring brings and the connection we have to nature in the city,” says Pichette.
Her design is bright and colourful and will feature several large mirrors and positive messages throughout. “I want viewers to be inspired and reminded of the importance of taking the time to nurture their own spirit so they can feel hopeful about all of the possibilities that the future holds,” says Pichette.

“I wanted to design a piece that reflected the symmetry of the brick and complimented the architecture of the area,” says Pichette. “I strived to create a space that was fun, bright, inviting and playful.”
Her work often challenges the viewer to explore issues of privilege, land and water rights, and environmental racism — the disproportionate impact of soil contamination and industrial land on areas home to racialized communities.
“I wanted this to be a space for people to engage with art through selfies and to capture their imaginations. The birds in my mural are commonly spotted in London backyards.”
