The lovely Miss Shayna jumping for joy on a beautiful, hot sunny day in Vancouver. I met her at one of the SRO’s run by Atira Women’s Resource Society. We got a couple of great shots so choosing one for the mural will be tough :)

We are down to the last 10 days of the fundraising campaign.. please take a moment to read about the massive wall of joy and contribute if you feel moved by the work.

Have a wonderful day!

I met Jenna at the Arco building which is an SRO run by Atira Womens Resource Society (location for the Jump for Joy photo mural I am creating). We went to this park a few blocks away and got some really amazing jump pics :) Can’t wait to post this one to the wall.

Im in the final count down for raising the fund to create this massive wall of joy, if you feel moved by the joy expressed in my images, please take a moment to help spread massive joy around the world. A pledge of any amount will help make it happen.

Jump for Joy of the day is Kim Dixon! July 2, 2015 #jumpforjoy #Vancouver #art

Such a sweet jump of joy! Kim is a dance teacher for a group of super talented girls in ProArte dance centre. This pic was snapped after a performance the girls did in Ambleside park, West Vancouver.

Another pice of the 200+ photos to be included in the massive mural puzzle. Just under 2 weeks left to raise the funds to complete the mural!

Would love your support to create this massive wall of joy. Learn more about the project and make a pledge of any amount here.

It’s Bianca Solterbeck @b_solterbeck celebrating Canada! @itsthattalkshow #jumpforjoy #canada #flag

The absolutely stunning and loads of fun Miss Bianca Solterbec jumped for joy at magic hour on the green roof of Coal Harbour’s Cactus Club. Bianca is jumping with the Canadian flag because it’s Canada Day today! Her family immigrated to Canada from Germany when she was 6 years old and she is celebrating having the opportunity to grow up as a Canadian… (she will be featured soon, sign up for the newsletter to learn more about Bianca :)

So many photos turned out beautifully from this shoot it will be difficult choosing which one to put on the Jump for Joy Photo mural…

Assuming I get all the funds in the next two weeks, I will begin work on the 18,000 sq ft mural in the beginning of August.

Time is passing by fast, please help me make the massive wall of JOY…

make a pledge of any amount here.

Have an amazing day!

Todays #Jumpforjoyphoto of the day is Kelsey Wilson! June 30, 2015

This is Kelsey. I met her at one of the Atria Women’s Resource Society SRO’s. She was in right away when I asked her if she wanted to Jump for JOY for the mural. She even asked me if she could volunteer to help when I start putting the posters together for the 18,000 sq ft mural – before I even mentioned that I would need volunteers. I love her enthusiasm and excitement for the project :)

Please help me make it happen! I only have 2 weeks left to raise the remaining $11,590 to cover expenses for the mural. Make a pledge of any amount here and help spread massive JOY around the world.

Thank you and have an amazing day!

So cool… I was honoured when contacted by the super talented journalist Tao Sheng, Editor of Chinese Magazine – Rise Weekly. She has featured the Jump for Joy Photo Project and my fundraising efforts for the Jump for Joy Photo Mural 2.0 BIG JOY.

She discovered my project through my Instagram feed (social media rocks). We met up to chat about the mural, how people can get involved, and even be in the mural by pledging on the Indiegogo Campaign.

I was happy to share a few the fun pics of amazing people, doing good things in the world who have taken time to be part of the project so far. We even talked a bit about me doing a Jump for Joy mural in Beijing one day! :)

But first, I will need to raise the funds for the 18,000 sq ft Jump for Joy Photo Mural 2.0 BIG JOY I’m working on in the DTES of Vancouver. Right now, I have less than 17 days to raise the remaining $12,000 or, I wont have the money to create this epic wall of joy.

Rough Draft Mock up to Scale for 18,000 sq ft Jump for Joy photo mural – Please help make it Happen!

Mock up for 18,000 sq ft Jump for Joy Photo Mural in Vancouver

Mock up for 18,000 sq ft Jump for Joy Photo Mural in Vancouver

Some perspective on how epic this 18,000 sq ft jump photo mural will be…

This is a rough mock up to scale. The small stick figure in the left bottom corner is me jumping for joy… Im 5’6.

Each square is a 6×6 or 4×6 poster, the large section is 20×40 ft

It will take approx. 94 – 6×6 sqf, 42 – 4c6 and 63 – 6×4 photos and one massive 20 x40 to create the mural. Each of those individual posters will be made up of 25 individual sheets of part, cut and asked together before being posted to the wall.
I can’t do this alone, your contributions will help create this amazing wall of jumping joy.

You can be part of this joy filled community project!

Please take the time to pledge, help create and spread massive joy around the world:

It’s Wiggy and Two Paws! #jumpforjoyphoto of the day! #DTES #Gastown #Vancouver

Taking the risk to jump is a beautiful metaphor for all aspects of our lives. Jumping is something only we can do for ourselves. When we jump, and we jump for joy, we use our own power and strength to lift ourselves up. When we take the risk to open ourselves up, we inspire others to do the same.

This is Wiggy and her dog Two Paws :) They live in the Arco Hotel (run by Atira) – location of the 18,000 sq ft mural I will be creating this summer. We chose the Hastings Urban Farm, a community garden in the DTES of Vancouver, for her Jump for Joy. We tried to get Two Paws to jump at the same time.. this is as close as we could get :) but fun trying.

This will be one of the photos to go up on the Jump for Joy photo mural – assuming I raise the money to make it happen!

I only have 25 days left to raise funds to make this unique and heartfelt work. If you are inspired by my project and touched by the work I do, please consider contributing a pledge of any amount – every bit helps to spread the JOY!

Watch the video to learn more about the project and how you can take part:

Check out the new video I’ve added to the the mural campaign, it will make you smile:

Have a great day!

The #jumpoftheday is Tania Hamelton

I met Tania while recruiting some people to jump at the Dominion Hotel in Gastown, one of the SRO’s run by Atira Women’s Resource Society. She overheard us talking about it and said, that she wanted to JUMP – Yes! without even the slightest hesitation. When we met up for the jump we went off in search of a graffiti background, and found this spot together. After our jump shoot, she said she felt energized :)

And her jump photo will be in the Jump for Joy Photo Mural.

Would you like to do a jump for joy shoot with me and be in the mural too? You can! Check out how right here: http://igg.me/at/Lc-KC54o76I/x/53648

Ballerina Team with NYC Dream #jump for joy of the day! http://www.gofundme.com/otpsgs June 7, 2015

These talented, hard working girls took a few minute after their performance yesterday to jump for joy with me. I challenged these perfectionists to do the least dancer like, most imperfect jump they could do.. and they STILL look like the amazing dancers that they are :)

These North Shore dancers from ProArte, age 12-17, have earned the honour of being invited to perform on stage in New York this summer. The group earned the right to dance at Nationals by winning the Critics Choice award for their contemporary piece “Where from Here” performed at the regional convention in Washington State in January.

This is Nina. Last year, Nina helped me out on a few things while I was making my last mural. Having volunteers help me cut and paste together posters was immensely appreciated (before adhering the posters to the wall, each poster was cut and paste together with 15 individual pieces of 11×17 paper to create 4×4 ft posters).

This year I’m looking forward to creating an entire team of cutters and paste-rs. My next mural will be twice the size and the posters will be even larger… Crafty people living in Vancouver who would like to get involved and help create a beautiful uplifting, community public art project, please get in touch info@jumpforjoyphotoproject.com :)

Mural making on my mind… #jumpforjoy #Vancouver #mural #publicart

Photos and mural by Eyoälha Baker www.jumpforjoyphotoproject.com

Photos and mural by Eyoälha Baker http://www.jumpforjoyphotoproject.com

This is a little section of the first Jumping mural I made last summer, the new Jump for Joy Photo mural I will create this year will be very similar only on a much larger wall and in a more exposed location – The corner of Abbot and West Pender Street (DTES) Vancouver BC Canada.

I have a lot to do before even beginning the mural, most importantly – raising the funds to make it happen and taking at least 100-200 more jump for joy photos over the next few months – thats a lot of jumping photos!

I have put together a Kickstarter campaign and as soon as Im able to get an intro video produced, I will publish it and begin fundraising. I would very much appreciate your help in spreading the word once the campaign starts.. and if you are able to donate to the project and help spread the joy – that would be even more amazing :)

I will keep you posted as things progress.

Have a wonderful day!
