I had the honor and pleasure of working with Google's design team and interior designer to create a custom commission for Google's new flagship office location in San Francisco at Two Rincon in the library dedicated to the theme, 'Biophilia'.
The larger than life blooms in 'Native Grandeur' depict native San Francisco wildflowers. It celebrates the natural beauty of the city. It invites the viewer to enter into a vibrant and uplifting botanical world where one can pause, reflect and come away feeling refreshed.
