This mural is in the adolescent medicine building at Seattle Children's. It wraps around several large glass panels that make up the doctors' workspace. The theme of the art is the journey of transformation, starting with the rising sun.
This is the garden section of the journey.
This is the forest section of the journey.
The journey wraps up at the end of the day with the moon and the mountains.
A whimsical, super cute mural with a fun vibe illustrating the joys of eating soft serve ice cream and the process of acquiring its many flavored ingredients.

A garden themed mural for the main lobby on the Ryther Campus.
Here is a mural for kids in a healthcare environment when the art helps the staff to do their work: the illustrations playfully demonstrate how our hearing works and what happens during specific procedures. Staff can quickly point out the relevant sections to kids and engage them in a conversation, reducing their fear. Working with healthcare workers and creating visual work that helps them is the best possible reasons for me to make art.
This mural is in the lobby where kids and parents wait before getting into surgery. The theme of the mural (at the staff's request) is sleep and it is giving a chance for parents and kids to have a conversation about what can be expected during the upcoming procedure.
The starting concept for the art in the phlebotomy department was the human blood circulation system. There are several decals around the two exam rooms. Some are strategically applied next to the chair where kids sit to have their blood taken. Lots of fun details provide distractions for the child so staff can do their work fast and easy.
This mural - at the request of the clinic staff - addresses some of the procedures that happen before surgery (like taking some of the differently flavored anxiety reducing laughing gasses available). The rest of the mural encourages kids to be "cool as a cucumber" or "tough as a cookie" cause the surgery will be a "piece of cake".
Water themed mural for the phlebotomy department entry.
The concept for these 3 murals were the humpback whales that migrate by the Everett shores in the Puget Sound waters. They communicate with each other by sound about the route and food resources. The males scout out the passage first to make sure it is safe, then the females and the calves follow.
