My Vision of Peace
This art work started with photographs taken by my nephew David who has Down's Syndrome and Autism. He lives in a crowded, noisy world almost all inside his own head. His many voices, that speak to each other constantly, help Dave navigate in our world.

This artwork, filled with colors, textures, and symbols, represents the diverse cultures around the world and the different ways we relate to each other. I believe that we must recognize and acknowledge the similarities and differences among individuals as well as our many cultures, so that we can have peace.


Medium
This art work began with photographs taken by my nephew David. His eye for brilliant color, via unexpected exposures, makes for brilliant images on their own. With his parent's consent, I have digitally manipulated his images and combined them with my own. I am using Adobe Photoshop to create a larger body of work called "Dave's World."

Finding peace amongst the voices is the toughest thing there is. Beautiful story...beautiful sentiment.
