I recently completed this monster mural for the Mercantile Center in Worcester, MA. It was one of my biggest to date and depicted a peregrine falcon, one of my favorite birds. In conjunction with the installation of the mural, the Massachusetts Fish and Wildlife Department installed a falcon nesting box on an adjacent building to ensure that the falcon population will continue to grow in this urban area where they thrive. The goal with my work is to collaborate with scientists, biologists, environmentalists, and people in other professions to make real-world change to help threatened and endangered species. This project was the perfect example of this kind of collaboration.
