Once I began painting portraits on newspaper articles and had finished several of the pieces depicting hands and feet, I realized they looked more interesting than if the same portraits had been painted on canvas alone. I generally use current news articles that had an impact on me for the "Face" series artwork. Until I began my "Face" and "Hands & Feet" series, I considered myself powerless to affect change, being just a simple artist. I felt guilty over my inaction. I discovered a peaceful face painted over violent or horrific news events can be quite unsettling. Most people are indifferent about many problems affecting our world. It's a reality of life that I hope to change. For example, if you look beyond the placid face of "The U.S. Citizen," the articles behind it involve mass killings by gun violence in America. Surely we can write laws and regulations to greatly reduce such tragedies.

Through my oil paintings, I transform frustration into impact. I cut out news articles to form the backdrop of my work, capturing the disturbing realities I encounter. Amidst my annoyance, I also seek inspirational stories to preserve and enlighten future generations. Engaging viewers with interactive elements, I paint portraits, hands, and feet doing mundane tasks intertwined with the collages. From a distance, the figures stand alone, but upon closer inspection, the articles reveal themselves, urging viewers to delve deeper and become aware. With this unique approach, I aim to make a lasting difference and inspire societal change.
