Murals

My interest in muralism began at UCLA, where I was able to learn about the art form and its cultural relevance through my college internship at the Social and Public Art Resource Center in Venice, CA. I have been commissioned to paint children’s nurseries, bedrooms, bathrooms, classroom walls and pediatric health clinic waiting rooms. I am interested in creating more large-scale artwork for public spaces or private rooms – please email for collaboration opportunities.

This mural was too big to get one clear shot, so here’s a video showing all of it.

June-early August 2021: Two 2nd floor waiting rooms of the Pediatric unit at Valley Health Center Bascom in San José. I was commissioned to brighten up the two main waiting rooms with a focus on California’s natural environment. The first mural is centered on California’s oak woodlands and the second is on redwoods forests. See the gallery below for close-ups of both and the time-lapse videos that capture the entire process.

Both murals took around 40 (ish) hours in total, but the painting spanned over a few months in the summer. It was a great opportunity and I’m grateful to the staff at the clinic for their support and flexibility while I worked on these projects.

January 2021: Bathroom mural inspired by a New York Times Magazine cover. I’m grateful for my friends Danielle and Ryan who commissioned me for this dream of theirs and I’m glad I could help it fully come to fruition. Link to blog post with more progress shots and before/after videos.

May-July 2019: I helped out a fellow art teacher friend, Jessica Gutierrez, who designed and coordinated a huge wall mural in east San Jose. I painted two giant flowers that were between 4′-6′ wide and 3′-4′ tall. Jessica and her high school students from James Lick H.S. did an incredible job on this project. Here are a few in-progress images:


Mar. 2019: Under the Sea Porthole Mural Project in the main waiting room of Valley Health Center Bascom (same clinic as the mural last month). I am grateful to have been commissioned by the Valley Medical Center Foundation in order to complete this short 2.5-day project.
