Recreating Spencer Finch's

I was commissioned by Public Art of the University of Houston System to recreate Back to Kansas by Spencer Finch for the artist's work to be included in an outdoor group exhibition, Color Fieldon the University of Houston Main Campus. The work is roughly 10.5’ x 14’. It has 70 squares, each with a different color from specific aspect of the movie The Wizard of Oz.

House of Charity

Latex and acrylic on drywall, 8' x 65', 2020, made in collaboration with Michael H. Miller

The House of Charity (est. 1997) is a non-profit organization in Houston, Texas that provides medical and surgical care along with fire safety and burn prevention education to children in Houston and around the globe. Working with my fellow UH graduate painting student, Michael H. Miller, we were commissioned in the summer of 2020 to create a large, colorful, panoramic landscape of the state of Texas. This mural sits in one of the car port of one of their duplex units where children will come to play as they await reconstructive treatment in the city of Houston.
