The microscopic becomes macro in this mural. It features plankton of the Puget Sound, some of which are at risk due to ocean acidification. I loved researching each species, looking at them from multiple imaging sources, and then bringing my creativity into play when painting them at such a large scale. The result is a surreal, yet scientifically accurate, effect. Many people helped paint this mural and we had so much fun exploring the nuances of each plankton and working together to bring them to life.
