art bridges

Drawing or painting together is a unique way of getting people together and disrupting the canned narratives each of us carries long enough to let some sunlight in, often revealing a mutually shared wonder about life. I have drawn all around the globe, in refugee camps, on the streets, in cities and rural spots.

 

It seems an opportunity to share a evocative directive as set forth by Jesus: Love one another. Simple as that.

It's a start.

A project that is near to my heart: helping bring the visual arts into public housing for at-risk kids. It's inspiring to see these kids take off through all kinds of art classes.
