The Heart of Missoula murals is a unique public/private collaboration between the Missoula Public Art Committee, the Missoula redevelopment Agency and Rick Bice of Allegra Print and Imaging. The seven murals are located at the corner of Higgins and Broadway in downtown Missoula, MT.
The Clark Fork Coalition came to me with a project for their Capital Champaign. They wanted a piece of artwork that incorporated donor names and illustrated a Montana landscape. Originally, they were thinking about doing some sort of mosaic.
I was commissioned by Scott Billadeau, owner of Liquid Planet, to work on several art pieces for his new beverage retail store and restaurant. In addition to the artwork, I was also a design consultant with the overall construction project of Liquid Planet, and painted all of the walls in the store with a soft faux finish in brown and yellow tones.
