The Offramp Mural was commissioned by Offramp Gallery Director, Jane Chafin. Located alongside the busy Lincoln Avenue offramp of the westbound Interstate 210 freeway in Pasadena, CA, the mural is an interpretation of the immediate environment: freeway, Italian cypress trees, hills, mountains and atmospheric conditions. The mural has been on public view since May 2011 and is painted on a detachable canvas. For archival purposes, the mural will eventually be stored for future exhibitions.
Hahamongna was a temporary mural located in the main stairway at the Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena, CA. Funded by an Individual Artist Grant from the City of Pasadena, CA and the Cultural Affairs Division, this mural referenced the indigenous people of Pasadena, CA through an interpretation of the Hahamongna Watershed Park, a nature preserve located along the northwest edge of Pasadena. The two-walled mural functioned as a painted environment into which one could walk, with elements that suggested a canyon trail. This mural was the first in a series of ongoing, site-specific installations initiated by Armory Curator, Sinéad Finnerty-Pyne.
Sausal Redondo is a commissioned mural located in the home of Stuart and Melita Riddle, Manhattan Beach, CA. The mural features colors, textures and an overall shape that interprets the architecture and interior design of this unique contemporary residence by Fasola Architects. The title of the mural references the name of the 1837 Mexican land grant that included present day Manhattan Beach, Rancho Sausal Redondo or "a large circular ranch of pasture with a grove of willows on it". The mural is painted on a curved wall reaching to a ceiling height of 22 feet and was painted by the artist alone on scaffolding over a period of several weeks. The curved wall and willow-like lines coincidentally relate back to the historic title.
