A most rewarding challenge; inspiring students with nature. As the namesake of Aurora Charter School, the northern lights illuminate the entire mural, starting with a boreal forest, moving to a steamy jungle and finally a coral reef. It was important to subtly show people interacting with nature as I wanted to encourage students to experience the wilds.Inspiring youth with nature, especially the ocean, is the meaning of life for me as an artist. Fantasy elements were used to further encourage imaginations.
This mural resides in a stairway at Aurora Charter School. It was designed to have viewers feel elated as they move up to the sky from the bottom of the stairs, and adventurous as they dive into the ocean descending the stairs.
I am available for freelance. Can't wait for the next exciting project! Could be yours?
