I Hope This Finds You

Artist Statement

    I Hope This Finds You
          I hope This installation draws you in.
    I hope you see the myriad of voices and find your own. I hope you help
                       someone else find theirs.
          I Hope This Finds You is a diary of my childhood,
          an exasperated and thoughtful poem, and a plea to the viewer use their own
     sorrow in defense of compassion.
This was a struggle and a process and I hope it               finds you.
