Website Artwork
The artwork showcased on the Homeless Youth Handbook - Oregon website was created by Brandt Maina, an abstract artist and writer from Nairobi, Kenya. "i am trying to fall in love with the rain" is an original work created by Brandt Maina using acrylic, oil pastels on paper. He came to Portland, Oregon in the Summer of 2021 and was excited the warm, dry weather reminded him of Nairobi. The wet winters, however, not so much. Brandt Maina can be contacted through his website: brandtmaina.com
