About This Episode

Paint The Trail Artwork

Local artist, Jeff Sonksen, started painting pop art murals when he found himself unemployed as a carpenter during the recession of the early 2000’s. In 2012, he began painting picket fence posts with these murals and surreptitiously placing them on the Seminole-Wekiva Trail in Longwood, Florida. Soon, his identity was revealed and he continued to add to the evolving exhibit, known as Paint the Trail, ever since. Some of his art installations are breathtaking in size and scope; some are 3D illusions. In this episode, you’ll get to know a little about Jeff Sonksen the artist and see a small portion of the Paint the Trail exhibit along the way.

To find the Paint the Trail art exhibit, begin where the trail crosses E.E. Williamson Road just East of Markham Woods Road; then follow the trail North toward Heathrow/Lake Mary.
