Using your voice is a choice. A choice we take for granted. A choice that can change lives or make the world a better place.

Artist Statement

This work shows how people react differently to situations and to the world. One person is trying to destroy the flower; the other trying to nourish it. Every day, we have a choice to recognize and nurture the beauty of nature or to ignore or destroy it. I’d like this piece to inspire people to think more about our beautiful earth, which can still be saved.
