When my creative friend Maurice Hunter asked me to create a sculpture with him for the Underwater Museum of Art, I jumped at the challenge without really even thinking about it. Maurice has an organization and a movement that is all about SELF LOVE. As a confident woman I know how important that can be, especially in the world we live in today, so I appreciate the passion he has for sharing the message. We quickly created the concept of a woman standing in a confident pose in front of a mirror with the words LOVE THYSELF across the top. When viewing our sculpture from the front, YOU are her reflection in the mirror.
Being accepted as one of the UMA artists (in year #2 of existence) was an honor. The process of figuring out how we would create our sculpture was quite an experience that continually pushed me way outside of my comfort zone.
