Since 1975, the San Diego husband-wife team have been leaving their beautiful mark on homes, commercial properties and public art installations. They are probably most noted for their mural of Charles Lindbergh, which stood for many years greeting travelers to the Commuter Terminal at the San Diego International Airport.

The Board of the Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project launched this ambitious outdoor mural program by contributing the funds themselves.
