Bobbi Mastrangelo's personal art theme is of manhole covers, grates and water covers depicted in urban settings. Her "grateworks" have been executed in many creative media. The most popular art forms are her unique embossed prints on hand made paper and authentic appearing manhole covers in trompe l 'oeil wall relief works.
