Wildflowers of Elliott BayI was commissioned by the non-profit Downtown Seattle Association to make some artwork to brighten up the neighborhood. The direction was bright colors + lots of plants, so I made a bunch of drawings from observation along the nearby Elliott Bay waterfront trail. then I took them to my studio to scan, compile, and color them digitally. It was printed on vinyl and installed on a vacant storefront.

Dandelions on Mt. RainierCreated for Hill House Mural, a rotating art wall. Muralists were commissioned to create an image on the 15’ wide detached garage wall in Capitol Hill, Seattle; each one lasted for three months before being covered by the next artists’ work. The endeavor ended in 2021.
This was made during the early COVID lockdowns in May 2020. I wanted to transport Seattlites to a calming place, like the wildflower fields in the nearby Cascade mountains.
