LA Metro’s Through the Eyes of Artists Neighborhood Poster Series

I am thrilled to announce that my artwork has been chosen to represent the neighborhood of Marina del Rey in the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s “Through the Eyes of Artists” Neighborhood Poster Series.

In this series, local artists have been chosen to represent, through their lens, what makes each of Los Angeles’ neighborhoods unique and desirable.  I frequent Marina del Rey almost daily, so the task of creating this piece was one that brought me so much joy.  I chose to feature what I love most about this area – the confluence of marine activities like sailing, boating, biking on the bike path, running, dog walking, and the regular comings and goings of the fishing boats trailed by gulls, pelicans, and sea lions.  The artwork also features the ecologically significant Ballona Wetlands and Ballona Creek which reaches the ocean at the Marina.  The unique flora found in this area is highlighted as well as one of its most beautiful residents – the egret.

My goal with this artwork is that it can be eye-catching and engaging for all ages and audiences allowing them to feel inspired and uplifted by the beautiful setting of Marina del Rey.

The artwork will be translated into posters and installed in buses that run in the neighborhood featured in 2019 and 2020.

Thank you LA Metro for choosing my artwork for this awesome collection.  You can learn more here:
