A wildlife walk with Gary Drostle

Since he was last featured in Tile Addict, Gary Drostle has created even more awe-inspiring work.  In particular, a notable contribution from this mosaic artist is present in Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital in California.  The project aimed to create a welcoming, fun, and creative healing space; a far cry from the routine drudgery present in most hospital buildings.

To achieve this, its design incorporates level upon level of artistic representations of Northern California wildlife, from sea, to forest, to mountains, and so on. The ground floor is, naturally, the home of the California seashore.  And this is where Drostle made his first mark.
