1% Mural, Gladys Woods Elementary School

I was selected to create a mural in the “Winter” hallway of the school. Winter in the boreal forest is known to be long, cold and dark. I wanted my design to be rich in vibrant colors, organic movement and abstract shapes celebrating our longest season. My concept features recognizable visual elements in this environment including 1) The Chugach mountains layered with snow, spruce trees which are resilient and tolerant of our cold winters and the phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis – our northern latitude gives us the opportunity to enjoy this spectacular sight.
