eastern oregon mural fest
In October of 2019, I trekked 6.5 hours east to the city of Ontario, Oregon for the first Eastern Oregon Mural Festival. Put on by Invoice PDX, Treasure Valley Cannabis, and Portland Street Art Alliance, artists from Idaho and Oregon came together for one weekend to create public art and engage with the local community. My piece centered around the Greater Sage Grouse, a crucial bird in the sagebrush ecosystem found throughout the nearby Owyhee Canyonlands.

Mac Market is a collaborative food, drink, and event space housed in a historic warehouse building within McMinnville’s developing craft district called the NE Gateway. In the summer of 2019, I teamed up with a trio of local students to craft a 60' mural for the newly-renovated Mac Market. Our goal was to complement the space's colors and geometric design elements while celebrating the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
