My name is Ryan McFarland. I am 28 years old and currently incarcerated at Waiawa Correctional Facility. After being locked up for 5 years in a high stress environment, the only freedom to myself I can get is through quiet meditation and through my art work.
Basically I get both in this program and it has helped me find peace for about a month. I hope you can enjoy is as well. God Bless.
Thank you for purchasing and supporting our CARE Project artists. The purpose of the CARE Project is to help these talented artists market and sell their artwork so they can earn money for their transition back to their communities.
When you purchase an art piece, after printing and fulfillment expenses, we pay the artist 60% of the proceeds, and 40% goes to the WorkNet CARE project so we can assist artists with reentry support services.
We help our artists with services such as getting their ID documents, finding employment, housing, and other services they need for a successful transition.
Our artists come up with innovative ways of creating their art since they have limited access to art supplies. They may create their drawings on envelopes, and folders, or render their drawings on two pages. This is why you might see a line in the middle of their drawing.
When the prison allows us, we can provide them with colored pencils or pens so they can draw. What you see in their drawings is a resilient artistic expression that emerges regardless of adversity.
