My current practice aims to raise the worker up. I believe that the low wage participators in our society have borne excessive fruit to the rich, and my subject matter seeks to glorify the underpaid. Those who work hard in spite of an ability to save, or gain reasonable equity. As the gap in national wealth thickens, a larger percentage of these individuals are being omitted from concern by those largely in charge of society. As a result, I am looking to effectively speak on behalf of the worker’s progression.
