Public Artist Art Roster
The enveloping and immersive aspect of public art allows me to create an alternate universe that takes the viewer out of the mundane and into possibility and wonder, one where people can stumble upon it without entering a gallery - That is my love and my passion. With recurring themes of parallel dimensions, magic and whimsy, but with deeper meaning and undertones, my pieces invoke self reflection. I look forward to bringing a unique vision to street art and to other public spaces for my community.
One of my favorite things to do is to reverse engineer a design, problem solve, and think of innovative ways to bring a vision to life. Integrating the client’s or community’s vision with mine, deep consideration is given to environmental factors and how the piece will be interacted with and used from day to day. All of these come together to shape the design. Thorough research is done for every material used, that includes consulting with colleagues such as engineers, architects, or other public artists. I fabricate my own pieces and/or work closely with local fabricators when necessary.
I have created 2 and 3 dimensional murals, using many techniques and mediums, temporary and permanent art installations, worked with local businesses, and shop owners to create store window displays and other permanent fixtures. I have also collaborated with artists and organizations doing prop and set design, and various art directing projects.
A highlight of my career was when I received the Artist Opportunity Grant from The Arizona Commission on the Arts, I produced an immersive art event for the community called Lucid Bloom. I worked with local artists and musicians, coordinated with multiple venues and vendors, and did the creative direction for the entire event, while also performing in it as a live meditative mural painter. The goal was to create a reprieve from the intensity of our current world and also from the mundane of the everyday and it was made accessible to everyone in the community as a free event.
