This fall I've been researching and designing a 60 foot heritage mural for the new Peace-Health hospital here on San Juan Island. The subject will be the history of healthcare in the San Juan Islands. Our story parallels the story of modern medicine, in an island way. I am creating a timeline of the characters and innovations that are unique to these islands. From that I plan to design panels that tell our story.
