Miami Mangrove Forest, 2004

These drawings were initially exhibited at Miami Art Fairs:  OMNIART I  in December 2004 (above) and OMNIART II in January 2005 (below).  The images were used to paint the columns beneath I-95 and create the Miami Mangrove Forest, a metaphoric reforestation of Downtown Miami.
