Etching on stone.

Ethiopian Boy

One of the challenges of being an artist is drawing something that I know about or has a significant personal impact.

The famine in Ethiopia in the mid 1980s effected me deeply. The summer after I did this set of drawings, I went on a trip with Youth With A Mission to Miami to help repair buildings in a Cuban refugee camp after Hurricane Andrew.

I have never been to Africa, but my brother has, and he says the experience has changed his life.
