I was commissioned with artist Kate Clark to conceptualize, fabricate, and install a permanent gateway sculpture at Pathways Park in Seattle, Washington.


Pathways Park opened in June 2024 and is a renovated public park that carries on the memory and light of Eli, a little boy who showed us the importance of ACCESSIBILITY and INCLUSIVITY for everyone. Pathways Park has accessible play equipment and spaces for all abilities and ages to enjoy. 

Our sculpture is based on the Pileated Woodpecker, which we believe creates affordable housing and community. Pecking holes into trees, the woodpecker excavates cavities that house a diverse community of squirrels, owls, birds, and insects! 

Standing at the entrance to Pathways Park, our steel trees with animal sculptures remind us of the woodpecker community builders among us.

Materials: steel tubes, bronze animal sculptures
