A Mile in My Shoes

Artist Statement

“A Mile in My Shoes” showcases six individuals from different walks of life. My piece illustrates the idea that immersing yourself in others’ lives, rather than judging them, is vital to moving forward. I believe walking in the shoes of others allows you to gain empathy and perspective – enriching your own life through understanding the diversity around you.
