Our process empowers artists to be change agents, stimulates dialogue about critical issues, and builds bridges of connection and understanding. Our work is created in service of a larger movement that values equity, fairness and progress across all of society. We listen with empathetic ears to understand the aspirations of our partners and participants. And through beautiful collaborative art, we provide people with the inspiration and tools to seize their own future.

This includes more than 2,000 who enroll in ongoing art and muralism workshops offered by our Art Education, Restorative Justice, and Porch Light programs; more than 8,000 who co-create our stunning works of public art; and more than 15,000 who tour our multi-neighborhood collection.

I am a pure painter and until recently a designer, director, sculptor, and printmaker. All of these have helped guide my decisions as a painter from my early conceptual installations to my forays into esoteric knowledge as a director. It can take a very long time to gain the technique and exquisite craftsmanship that an artist needs.
