Powder Rentals Mural

Powder Rentals Mural

Concept:An oversize piece of original artwork. Instead of the traditional mural route I decided to make a triptych of 6' x 4' aluminum  panels to allow for the piece to be moved, re-merchandised and maintained by simply wiping clean. The linework on the aluminum panels is a oversized vinyl decal of my drawing. The piece comes off the wall 1". The piece includes a ski-tourer, a skier, and a snowboarder... the sporting equipment you can rent  at Powder Rentals.

Adventure Quencher: Hut Trip and Show

Adventure Quencher: Hut Trip and Show

Concept:Four friends, and artists of different mediums, and one incredible chef, took a trip to the Hazel Hut and produce a gallery show from the inspiration gained. The Hut is located in the North Slocan, between New Denver, BC, and Kaslo, BC.

The show, in turn,  was very much a tribute to the Kootenay's old growth forests.
