This low detail mural has the three subjects of Strathma's logo; Sherwood Park (and Strathcona County), the Aspen Parklands, and the Beaver Hills Biosphere. The Strathcona County Museum and Archives wanted these local subjects, urban and natural, to vibrantly jump out with colour.
The Strathcona County Museum and Archives commissioned this colourful wall Mural for the exterior of their building facing Wye Road in Sherwood Park, Alberta. The mural welcomes visitors inside to experience the natural history and human history shown in the mural.
An Elk Island bison or buffalo grazing in a field is painted with expressive brush strokes in this mural about Strathcona County, Alberta. There are around 400 plains bison and 300 wood bison protected in Elk Island, Canada's only fenced national park.
As a mural artist I look for iconic buildings and places when painting the spirit or character of a town to bring a sense of local neighbourhood pride and add placemaking by giving art about a place to that place. For this mural about Sherwood Park in Strathcona County I created a building portrait of Festival Place, a centre for the arts.
The iconic Canadian beaver had to be painted into this Alberta mural depicting the Beaver Hills Biosphere. One of the few mammals capable of changing a habitat, beavers are a keystone species that turns a forest into a variety of habitats.
