If People Knew

We're all looking for something in the world, but prejudice is a wall that blocks our view.

Artist Statement

This piece was created to inspire people to view each other as complex, three-dimensional beings. My intention is to influence people to look beyond the surface because the first appearance can often deceive. I’ve been the victim of people deciding who I am without ever knowing me. Many times, I’ve wanted to convince people that I am more than meets the eye. My hope is that, through this piece, people will be more inclined to see beyond surfaces and and further into the many layers that make us human.
