"I’m representing resilience in my art by showing the warmth and the comfort I receive from my dog and by depicting the peaceful night sky. My dog is my best friend and her name is Roxie. When I’m feeling sad I can go to her and I know she will cheer me up since she’s always happy to see me. The energy she flows to me changes my emotions. The sky and the moon that surround the dog in my work represent how I love looking at the stars and the infinite sky. When I gaze at the beautiful night sky, I can lose myself, and all of my worries and problems fade away."
