Integrated artwork for the restoration of Riverton Creek: A mural, a sound piece, a carving, 3 living willow sculptures, and a sign along the Green River Trail in Tukwila. The creek was daylighted where it meets the Duwamish and the pipe that held it back was removed, allowing salmon to once again swim up the creek. I wanted the work to change and grow along with the restoration.

This stretch of river is home to a number of culturally imporant sites for the Duwamish People, including North Wind’s Weir and Duwamish Hill (Grandmother’s Hill), both of which have seen major restoration efforts over the years. In addition to the Riverton Creek restoration, two other large restoration sites - Duwamish Gardens and Chinook Wind - are visible just across the river.
