Artist Statement

Mentorship can be the one thing that helps a child grow to reach his full potential. In this piece, the viewer can see the growth of the boy as he goes from a child drawing to an adult that designs buildings. It shouldn’t matter what a child’s background, race, or lack of parental figures is; every child should be able to succeed and become a mentor themselves one day.
