Tree Whimsy was created for the newly constructed Pediatric Cardiac Care Unit of University Hospital in San Antonio. Floor to ceiling corridor artworks were printed on Acrovyn by Design wall covering. Dimensional Murals were designed for an entrance monitor wall (8' x30') and for the children's play room (8'x14'). The dimensional murals were printed on EcoBella wall covering then die cut acrylic prints were affixed to the surface creating a durable, touchable, dimensional mural.
My goal was to create a whimsical thematic environment that would provide young patients and their families a positive distraction during hospital stays.
I worked closely with the UHS Art Consultant a committee of Doctors, Nurses and Child Life Specialists while creating the imagery. I worked with the designers at O'Connell Roberts on placement of art work.

[ 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.
