Artist StatementI am a self taught artist on a mission. I vow to keep painting the portraits of every gun victim I can find until Congress passes basic gun safety legislation. This is what I can do to try to heal my city. I also vow that these portraits will build a bridge for the loved ones of all these victims to cross the gap their deaths leave to another phase in their lives. Their lost ones will help them.
I am a self taught painter who has lived in Baltimore for over 30 years. A late starter I did not try oil painting until I was thirty. In April of 2013 I started painting gun victims. Hence the Million Gun Victims March was born and continues until the present.
