Canopy Dreams is a series of four unique photo works created for the h2 Hotel in Healdsburg, CA. Focusing on the iconic Live Oak, the works create a sense of lying back and looking up into the tree canopy and through to the sky.
To create stunning artworks that celebrate the local environment, and to provide a more relaxed invitation to visitors - business and pleasure - to enjoy the area.
Each of these compositions are created from several photographs. Those final designs were printed onto acrylic and encapsulated in glass.
The artist worked closely with Svea Lin Soll, art consultant, and Dorothy Lenehan of Lenehan Architectural Glass, Oakland CA, throughout the fabrication process.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
