My work utilizes intricate drawing and painting methods infused into various printmaking techniques. Through these processes, I am able to weave a narrative based on the immigrant experience through the eyes of the blue-collar worker, who has not been able to achieve the American dream. The harsh reality in the current political and economic climate, is that the blue-collar worker is both undervalued and underpaid. I portray them in noble stances with dramatic cityscapes as their backgrounds, to be viewed in the same light as iconic figures.
