Both art and science institutions are pretty inaccessible to the general public. An art gallery is overly intimidating with its white walls and aggressive air conditioning, whereas science museums require a lot of reading and patience.
Murals have the ability to blow right past these restrictions. With no entry fees, dress code, or art history classes required, public art is an empathetic medium that actively engages a local community.
My murals explore evolutionary science in bright, simple illustrations that aim to render concepts accessible to anyone who passes by.
I've completed murals for the the Downtown Grand Rapids Inc., the Urban Institute for Contemporary Art, Brewery Vivant, Sparrows Coffee, Little Space Studio, Vertigo Music, and Marble Elementary School.
