Flying Cities Mural

Completed in August of 2015, this mural currently hangs in a Microsoft building located in Redmond, Washington. Through a process of sketching and revising and communicating with the project's commissioner, the design chosen was one that allowed any viewer walking through the space to have something new to look at, despite revisiting the same piece. The finalized sketch was then projected onto a prepared wall to find the basic shapes and forms. A 3D model was also created of the basic structure of the boats, to help add a sense of lighting. Finally the infinite details of the piece were added using Prismacolor ArtStix. The piece was then finished with spray varnish. It now provides a constant source of conversation about a range of subjects, from the functionality of the boats portrayed, to the economic structure of the cities that float atop them. And if one is less inclined to talk, it remains a beautiful space to explore in the viewer's mind.

The Firebird Costume Designs

A recent commission that involved creating costumes for Stravinsky's The Firebird. I was given specific definitions for what each costume was to represent and how it must be adaptable to allow the dancer to move, but still convey a unique mood or presence on the stage. These designs were then interpreted by the teacher of the Centralia Ballet School located in Centralia, WA for their performance of The Firebird.
