King's Island

Nursery area, Bethesda Christian Church, Sterling Heights, MI

This mural project was completed in 2009 in a church in Sterling Heights, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. The nursery area was split into three main sections, newborn, infant, and toddler areas. The client wanted the newborn area to be a type of heavenly theme, the infant area to be creation theme, and the toddler area to be a Noah’s Ark theme. The outside of the toddler area was designed like the outside of Noah’s Ark, while the animals are filing in. Once you enter the room, you see the door of the ark from the inside and all the animals entering the ark.

Special thanks to Robert Susan, who, in addition to being a great host, produced the three-dimensional pop out sections using various thicknesses of mdf board.
