    About

    “The House of Smiles” is a commission for eight wall hangings made of sewn and painted fabrics that speak of community and prosperity.
    Published:
The eight artworks created for OPD in San Francisco speak of community and prosperity.  Sewn and painted fabrics were the creative means to produce a visual narrative that is cheerful, playful, welcoming, sincere, and elegant.

“The House of Smiles” is the heart of the narrative, the home of nurturing hands that help create transformations that lead to healthier and happier lives.  It is the place within the neighborhood, within the city, that is creating prosperity for and with its patients.  Symbolically, smile bubbles float about, spreading joy, showing glimpses of those undergoing orthodontic treatment or those having finished, all flashing their beautiful smiles.
