MURALS

Mural work functions as a universal language. Like music and facial expressions, public art can transcend literacy, education level, cultural background, and social class. My murals explore evolutionary science in bright, simple illustrations that aim to render concepts accessible to anyone who passes by.​ With public art, I can make ideas available to people who may not otherwise feel comfortable in a science museum (a lot of reading) or an art museum (kind of elitist; way too air conditioned). I aim to design murals in a way that is engaging and thought-provoking so that folks can continue to find new elements over time.

I've been working as a muralist professionally for 2 years now and have apprenticed for another 2 before that. I've worked with Lansing's Below The Stacks festival, Grand Rapids' After Dark, and Grand Rapids' ArtPrize.
