The State Hotel

Commissioned Portrait Series
in Collaboration with Vida Design and Lake Union Partners

In executing the portrait collection for The State Hotel's guest rooms, my goal was to choose 20 individuals who are diverse, quirky, and part of Seattle's unique lore.

 

As a group, the subjects represent a wide range of eras, from the founding of the city to modern day, drawing attention to Seattle trivia while speaking to inclusivity, diversity and the many different cultural influences that make Seattleites proud of their city.

The portraits were printed as a signed and numbered limited edition.
