The subjects of my portraits are people I help care for as a nurse at the clinic where I work in Seattle’s Pioneer Square.  Many of the sitters in my portraits are homeless; some are not. All have been touched by homelessness.  Warm gloves, hats, underwear, socks (often worn two months at a time), a cup of coffee and a sandwich are luxuries for people who are homeless.  Instead of putting a dollar value on my portraits, I sell them in exchange for items that are given to our patients at the clinic and to other organizations that help people in need.
