PHOTOS: Julian Reams literally is leaving his mark on the St. Lucie County Fire District.
Reams, 32, a firefighter with the agency, also is an accomplished artist from Miami, and he brought some of his artistic passion to his job as a first responder.
Reams has painted three murals on as many fire stations, two of which are stations where he’s been based since joining the agency in December 2012.
“There’s no rules to art; there’s no age limit to it. It’s for everyone,” Reams said at Station 12 in Port St. Lucie. “I think that’s the cool part about art, what I enjoy about it the most.”
At Station 12 on Southeast Village Green Drive, Reams painted an enormous mural of a firefighter’s head with a helmet and self-contained breathing apparatus. The painting adorns the wall above some lockers, and is about as tall as Reams.
