Artist Statement

As a parent one of the hardest things to deal with is watching one of my children be in pain, whether it is induced physically or mentally. With all the social media outlets available today, bullying is not just isolated to the playground anymore. Kids can be cruel because they don’t understand that what they say and do can hurt people in a non-physical way; they don’t realize that “words hurt.” Each of us should take the time to find out who people are and look for the good and uniqueness in everyone.
