Urban Canvas - Mahonia Bldg Mural Project 2019
In March 2019 I will be producing my first public mural for the Mahonia Building, Downtown Eugene, OR. The project is sponsored by the City of Eugene's Urban Canvas Public Art Program with in-kind support from Lane Community College. The 8'x 30' piece, titled "Mahonia Dreaming" depicts the ridge line and hills that surround the area, an abstracted and repeated pattern based on the mahonia plant (Oregon Grape) and dynamically painted, colorful mahonia flowers.
