We rescue pianos and put them on the street for everybody to enjoy. We want to give pianists more opportunities to play for the public.

 

ARTIST STATEMENT:

I love the way these pianos appear in unlikely or unlooked-for places around the city. I wanted to play with that concept in decorating my piano. I'm frequently drawings plants, foliage, and jungles in my illustrations and a jungle seemed like the perfect metaphor for a city where you find unexpected treasures. My piano became a jungle covered in foliage with eyes winking and hands reaching, people or animals hidden among the foliage and looking for something to discover.

 

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY:

I am an illustrator, artist, designer, maker working in Portland, Oregon. I love to draw. My work is homemade, hand-made, and hand-built. I like objects that have been touched and handled; objects that tell a story because it looks like someone loved them at some point.
