This mural began as a collection of over 50 sketches of various places, animals, and people representing New Mexico. I created a collage of sketches and designed their placement in consultation with the owner of the market.
The idea was to create a mural with an element of surprise, drawing the viewer in to discover both new and familiar iconic images of New Mexico.

This mural was commissioned by the owner of The Hive Market in central Santa Fe.
One of the aims of the mural is to bind together iconic images of New Mexico and express the store's passion for all things New Mexican. In this project, In this mural, I illustrated The Hive Market's values, such as sustainability and promoting and supporting local suppliers, honey makers, farmers and other local businesses.
