My first public art commission, Art Interruptions, is an annual temporary art program created by the Office of Arts & Culture in partnership with the Seattle Department of Transportation with 8 installations along the Rainer Valley East-West Neighborhood Greenway.

Miniature Mobility honors the history of Seattle transit (especially in Rainer Valley) -from street cars to light rail – with a transportation-themed scavenger hunt. The tiny artworks, measuring approximately 1.5″x.75″ will be installed in unexpected locations along the Greenway. The transportation themed sculptures are inspired from historic and current day street cars including buses, trains, bikes and other forms of transportation.
