These murals were both private commissions, in historical Barrio Viejo and the newer San Agustin neighborhood in Tucson. They both are born from the intention to bring the details of the surrounding desert into the urban setting, I have taken familiar flora and presented it in such a way that I hope it is ‘reframed’ for the viewer. There are three dipictions of yucca in the first mural: the halved fruit, the resulting seed pod and the abstracted plant. The second more recent work describes a plum blossom, a study of one of Galileo’s moons, the long eared owl and the ubiquitous dandelion.
