This beautification effort will enhance the experience of all those visiting the corridors and will help to prevent vandalizing of boxes.

In line with my one of a kind artwork, I choose nature as an analogous subject as all elements of nature are unique. With no two leaves, trees, flowers, or other natural elements ever being exactly alike, I bring to light the intricate textures and details of my subjects, giving attention and appreciation to every aspect through careful arrangement and layering. I use nature as a catalyst to explore concepts of life and health. I use flowers as peaceful symbols of life. Flowers illustrate the passage of time and growth, taking on the appearance of decay in the winter and sprouting anew with the return of spring. In this way my floral artworks are an inspirational symbol of resurrection and healing. Nature exhibits a transitory beauty, an ephemeral symbol of the cycle of life, reminding viewers that life is meaningful and sacred.
