Artist Statement

My vision was to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his most famous “I Have a Dream” speech. He laid out a vision of a better community and brighter future by learning to embrace differences and work together. Dr. King inspired me and countless others to strive to make a better tomorrow for our children and ourselves. Through this image I wanted to convey that our words can have impact and create beauty just as easily as they can tear us down.
