SR3 SeaLife Response, Rehabilitation, and Research privacy screen, vinyl mesh printed with digital paintings. Multiple sections, each ranging between 7-10' heights and 3 - 144' lengths

Wood was selected by the City of Des Moines and SR3 for the opportunity to create this one-of-a-kind artwork to function as a privacy screen for their veterinary workspace at the Des Moines Marina. Each unique image was made in collaboration with the Marine Biologists of SR3 to create pleasing and accurate representations of local flora and fauna in order to catch the curiosity of the public and inform our community about the beautiful animals of the Pacific Northwest.

This vinyl fence wrap is a permanent installation at 2003 S 216th Street, 98811, Des Moines, Washington

Progression Grid, latex paint and sealant on dibond panels, 4' x 8' each

Progression Grid is a graphic mural intended to explore the elements of change brought by development and the passing of time. In a reference to the city that surrounds it, abstracted images culminate to describe elements of expansion, inclusion, and evolution as brought by both cultural and natural efforts.


The three panels act as a triptych, and can be read sequentially from either direction or as a complete single image. Each panel is broken up into a grid of cells; each is painted with symbols and patterns that reference the new language of modern symbols (arrows, stone, leaves, architecture, folded fabric, etc.) Abstracted patterns describe the flow of time and the archaeological settling of material.


The piece was on view throughout Sound Transit's Light Rail Station construction period 2015 - 2018 on Brooklyn Ave NE and 43rd street in the University District of Seattle, USA.
