"Youngstown is a place full of heart, with a rich history that I think needs to be shared. It's where my roots are. I lived there for 18 years, and got to know the people and places around the city. My family is still there, and the community they are connected to is all a huge part of who I am. My artwork reflects experiences and love for the different people and places there. Exploring the different boroughs of Youngstown in my project and giving bits of history about the places and people there along the way!"
