She has created logos for local companies, such as Steel Oak Coffee’s Lights Out blend, which raises funds for sea turtle rescue programs with every sale. You can find her live painting in local spots such as Grind Gastropub on Sundays, The Hard Rock Hotel, and multiple artist festivals throughout the year. Thay’s Franca was chosen as the artist to complete Ormond Beach’s first mural project on the historic Ormond Garage building.
Her work is inspired by the tropical influence of her homeland in Brazil and current residence in the beach town of Ormond Beach. Vivid colors fill her paintings of landscapes, animals, and still lifes. Facing natural disaster head on has inspired Thays to use repurposed wood as the base for many of her creations.
