Natural Awakenings San Diego

Dr. Carolle Helps Repair Mural

Dr. Carolle Jean-Murat and Salvador Torres

Dr. Carolle Jean-Murat is helping master muralist Salvador Torres, an early exponent of the Chicano art movement, restore the 560 foot long and 26 foot high Kelco mural  located on Harbor Drive and Cesar Chavez Parkway in San Diego.

A depiction of the many different facets of life in the city, in particular San Diego’s connection with the Pacific Ocean, the mural took 13 months to complete.

Carolle met with Master Torres when she decided after finishing her memoir, Voodoo In My Blood: A Healer’s Journey From Surgeon To Shaman, coming out next spring, to do something creative, but outdoors.

She  is responsible for designing and painting an eight-foot long fish on the middle door of the side of a building.

“Designing and painting along with Master Torres is one of the highlights of my life, learning how to take a step backward, follow, and be in the moment while being creative and having a wonderful time.”
