    Radicato

    Breckenridge, Colorado (Culinary destination recipient of James Beard Award) 

    This body of work comprises 13 custom pieces of art, each created specifically for its placement within the restaurant, Radicato, located in the heart of Breckenridge CO. This collection illustrates the intersection of one’s journey leading back to their “roots” and the culinary experience. Among the root inspired pieces, there are illustrations highlighting the journey of those involved with bringing the restaurant to fruition. Chef and owner, Matt Vawter, had a specific focus for the artwork, and each piece adheres closely to the unifying thread “Radicato” which means “rooted in the sense of where one is from”. The collection was created using various mediums such as gold leaf, alcohol ink, acrylic paint, wire, and butcher paper.

    Wingate Elementary School Mural

    Grand Junction, Colorado

    Beginning with our Wingate Explorers, artist Anna Hileman aimed to demonstrate the vast world ahead for our kids while integrating the extraordinary features of this place we call home, a stepping stone for the journey ahead. As no two butterflies are alike and each butterfly contains every color of the rainbow, each student and staff member’s hand print has been placed within a ROYGBIV (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet) spectrum, signifying their vital part and attribution to the Wingate community and the world. Additionally, students and staff chose a letter or shape to make their handprint even more distinctive. The final prints to be placed were from Trigger, Wingate’s adored therapy dog. The monarch butterfly was chosen for its locality to this area and as a symbol of the transformation, strength, and journey of Wingate’s students and families. 

    Furthermore, Anna included local characteristics such as the monument, wild horse, dinosaur fossil, native wildflowers, petroglyphs, and bicycle tracks. The scorpion pays homage to Wingate’s history, signifying the connection of our past, present, and future, while the stars remind us all to reach for our dreams. 

    Thank You to the Wingate PTO, who planned, funded, and supported this art installation, and Anna Hileman for creating this mural. Furthermore, Thank You to Grand Junction Home Depot, Lowes, and FCI for supplies and scaffolding.   

    Rocky Mountain Elementary School Mural

    Clifton, Colorado

     

    In this mural, I sought to capture the school’s core values of education, unity, and nurturing environment for students.

    At the heart of the mural, a majestic eagle takes center stage, symbolizing strength, freedom, and ambition. With its wings spread wide, its symbolism encourages students to pursue their dreams and reach new heights.

    Adjacent to the soaring eagle stands a vigilant mother eagle, embodying protection and guidance. This nurturing presence reflects the dedication of our school’s faculty and staff, who support students through their educational journey.

    Beneath the eagle, its wing transforms into a flowing river, symbolizing both the local landscape and the continuous flow of knowledge and life.

    Finally, the Bookcliff mountain range and delicate peach blossoms are depicted, celebrating the area’s unique attributes and reminding us of the natural beauty and growth inherent in one’s journey through life.

    Mesa View Elementary School Mural

    Orchard Mesa, Colorado

    When creating the concept for this mural, I took into account the rich history of agriculture, Native American history and geographic locations of Orchard Mesa. The bees were a last minute addition after a very large swarm gently hovered over the students and families while administering handprints. The hawk is Mesa View’s mascot and also signifies the strength and determination carried within the students, staff and families of Mesa View Elementary. Thank You Mesa View PTO, FCI, Orchard Mesa True Value and Grand Junction Home Depot for supporting this installation.  

    Quality Italian

    Denver, Colorado

    During this project, I collaborated closely with interior designers to bring their vision to fruition.

    This encompassed hand-painted ceilings, a custom lion head, gold leaf lettering applied to glass doors, and hand painting the restaurants name on the building over the entrance. Additionally, I formatted an arrangement of collage art made of authentic Italian air looms of which were hung in the stairwell.
