Creation and Research: Studies and Conceptual Designs for Murals

In 2017 I was a recipient of the Creation and Production Fund for Professional Artists, from the City of Ottawa. This grant funded a research project, in which I set out to create several studies for potential murals. I was able to devote the time to hone my creative aesthetic, think about compositional challenges, and ultimately create a small body of work that has helped me further develop my public art practice. I started by developing rough ideas on paper before creating more finalized digital paintings. Here is a selection of studies for murals that resulted from this project.

The most successful aspect of this project is the fact that I was able to use some of the sketches in actual mural projects. Here are some studies that resulted in finished murals around Ottawa.
