I’m excited to see that a mural I designed and illustrated for my undergraduate alma mater is being installed this week! The mural is for the new Biology building, so, of course, I cherished the opportunity to draw lots of plants and animals– a lemur, flying squirrel, and orchid, to name a few.

The mural will span 3 stories in panels of about:
The three mural panels together
3rd floor, 24’8″w x 10’9″h
2nd floor, 24’4″w x 10’8″h
1st floor, 14’8″w x 10’7″h
My design was printed onto adhesive panels and installed on the wall. When the mural is seen through the 3-story glass exterior wall of the building, the panels will appear to connect as one image. Thanks to my former professor Dr. Jon Monroe and the JMU Biology department for the job and to Erick DeMartino for guidance.
