The Relief Bus

The following artwork was featured in a live auction celebrating the 20th Anniversary of New York City Relief Bus (, an organization which exists to respond to the poor and broken by going to the streets to offer food, compassion, and connections to resources that lead to life transformation.


“I have created these works from the great treasures that are found in what is too often passed over in our every day. Remembering my experiences with each person brings to mind moments of listening, watching, and creating relationships. There is a hope in me that by capturing a time with them in a painting they, and we, will know they are valuable, beautiful, and to be admired.”
