Hi There!

I am excited to share news of my latest public art project - Seattle Art Interruptions 2016. Plus the usual festival appearances, new art works, and more.

Hope you had a great summer. Onward to Fall!

Seattle Art Interruptions 2016 - Public Art Project

As part of the City of Seattle's 2016 Art Interruptions public-art program, I, along with 6 other artists, have created temporary art installations along the East-West Neighborhood Greenway in Seattle's Rainier Valley neighborhood. My contribution is a series of whimsical MINI-MURALS tucked away behind 21 different street signs, creating a sense of discovery and surprise for pedestrians. 

More details, videos and behind-the-scenes process photos here:

All artwork will be up through Jan 2, 2017 and you are cordially invited to participate in this experience by visiting the site. This project was made possible by the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture and the Seattle Department of Transportation 1% for Arts Fund.
