Artist Statement:

Hope. Peace. Comfort. Transform. Forgive. These are things for which we lift our hearts, declaring our dreams, taking risks in faith. We all live for a better outcome in life. At times we experience pain. Other times we feel heard. This piece is an introspective commentary - our private, most inner thoughts are given voice, if even only within our own hearing. And somehow this gives us strength in the journey.
