Empower, Protect, Rise by JP Designs


Artist Statement

I am an artist creating both print-on-demand designs and mixed media art. My designs are intended to support current social issues as well as contribute to productive conversations and actions bringing Love, Peace, Liberty, Equality, and Justice for everyone near and far! My mixed media art investigates the relationship between family and current social issues. I am focused on the concerns I have for my three sons as well as other diverse families with regards to civil rights and equality, racial discrimination, profiling, and deportation. My artwork depicts family life, protest and the impact that current policies have on diverse families. I typically create mixed media paintings, blending a variety of two dimensional materials such as paper, magazine color swatches and acrylic or oil paint. My hope is that my work will help continue the conversations and lead to progressive actions that will address these issues. - J P

I have been an artist all my life. I grew up in a house surrounded by artists and so creating art has always been something I loved. My passion for art has also lead me to teach it, study it, and now use it as my voice along this new path of activism.

The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel.

Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.
