This piece was commissioned by a friend who is also a trauma therapist. She let me know that she has decided to hang in in her office. As she was looking for the right spot, she said, ". . .but I have to tell you how all my clients are commenting on it I love telling the title of the collection it comes from and that it was made by someone how has experienced trauma. A core group of my folks were adamant that it needed to be placed in the corner where we do 1 on 1 therapy so it could be a source of support."

I cannot think of a better life for a piece of my work. I am honored and humble to have thus little piece of shared journey with my friend's clients.
