2002 to 2005 Art Tile Mural covering a total of 2,080 square feet titled "Flyway" was designed for
the central garage at the Baltimore Washington International
Airport Baltimore MD.
This project received Award of Excellence, Parking Facility Design from
International Parking Institute.
My tile design was inspired by the flight patterns of migratory birds. The image came to me
after a visit to a stork sanctuary in Austria. I saw these large elegant birds, who migrate every year
to North Africa, and then return over thousands of miles to the same spot.This made me think of the activity at airports. People fly off on planes, go long distances, but then return home in the end. Such coming and going is an important part of our lives.
