Art Works created for Special Projects
2016 - Current
One of my favorite types of work are Commissions. I enjoy working with companies to bring an artistic, colorful, hand-made product to their audience in order to relay a message and amplify their experience.
I have had the honor to create commissioned work for many companies such as:
Goldenvoice, Vans, Splash House, Saguaro Hotel, City of Palm Springs, College of the Desert, FYF Fest, Chilli Bean Sunglasses, Select.Better CBD, Eaze, Westfield Shopping Mall - Palm Desert.
Location: Saguaro Hotel, Palm Springs, CA
Client: Sydell Group
About: This colorful, cinematic, Barbie diorama lives inside the Saguaro Hotel's lobby in Palm Springs, CA. @saguarohotels is the most Instagrammed hotel in the nation. Saguaro is famous for their rainbow colored hotel that coined the phrase, "Uncomplicated Fun."
I first created this diorama in 2016 and was able to refresh the installation in 2018. Each color represents a mood and activities that a guest can imagine themselves exploring while staying at the hotel.
Project: Splash House
Location: Saguaro Hotel and Riviera Hotel in Palm Springs, CA for Splash House music festival
Client: Goldenvoice, Tyler McLean
About: In the summer of 2019 I was commissioned by Tyler McLean to re-paint the iconic "Splash House" signs at the Splash House music festival in Palm Springs. I worked closely with Tyler to approve all graphics and colors. I hand-painted these signs in the middle of the summer, was assisted by Jasmine Jue, and I absolutely loved the way they came out.
"A Felt Eye View of Palm Springs"
Project: A Felt Eye View of Palm Springs
Location: Palm Springs International Airport
Client: Palm Springs Public Arts Commission
About: “A Felt-Eye View of Palm Springs” by Sarah Scheideman, an idea conceived by Commissioner Tracy Merrigan to create an interactive felt map of the city’s art collection to use throughout the year for community engagement.
With this brief in mind, I was commissioned to create a piece of art that would be engaging, accessible, interactive and made of felt.
The piece is 6ft tall x 8ft wide
Soon to be installed at the Palm Springs International Airport in 2020
"60th Anniversary / 6,000 Flags"
Project: 60th Anniversary / 6,000 Flags
Location: College of the Desert, Palm Desert, CA
Client: College of the Desert
About: I was contacted by Kay Hazen to produce a concept she had for College of the Desert's 60th Year Anniversary. There was a big celebration on the College of the Desert campus and she wanted a piece of land art to commemorate all the many years of education the college has brought to the Coachella Valley.
We created a massive number "60" on the grass using 6,000 gas line flags for our art material. This took us 4 days to complete and was unveiled at the commencement ceremony and then stay alive on campus for the following week.
Was assisted by Jasmine Jue and student Jon in making this happen.
