Three piece art hanging was specified as part of an art program for Sutter CPMC Hospital San Francisco. The art program is intended to provide visitors, patients and hospital employees with new and engaging visual experience. Creating welcoming and engaging environments improves well-being and has become a valued element in healthcare design. 3 pieces each 24"x24" | mixed media with glass
Art pieces from my series City were selected for waiting areas in an urban hospital. Mixed media work with glass offers viewers a bold and unexpected visual experience. Shimmering cut glass set against matte cement creates a high contrast and dynamic piece that captures the vibrancy and energy of the city. City is inspired by the intersection of natural and built worlds. A consistent graphic approach is used for architecture, urban forest, sky and water. Viewers are offered a familiar skyline with city meeting nature.
Collaboration with J.D. Thompson and Associates all occurred remotely. Art consultant Jane Thompson is familiar with my portfolio from previous collaboration. Jane requested the City concept inspired by the SF skyline. A palette of bold grayscale architectural forms meet shimmering blue greens of urban forest/sky and blues of water to create a dynamic visual experience. Iridized glass is particularly effective in catching ambient light and adds additional color tones and vibrancy to the work. Work shipped framed and ready to hang with 3 week turn-around.

[ 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.
