Artist Statement

Images of homeless encampments taken from my daily commute in Portland, Oregon, translated onto thin Kozo paper with pochoir technique. Quotes from members of homeless population collected by Jill Severn. A project to illuminate a difficult and sad situation in our contemporary American life, produced to bring beauty to an otherwise anti-aesthetic reality, in order to facilitate conversation and meditation.
