Artist's description: This piece is inspired not only by the growth that we all experience in our lives, but mainly how I feel that I am finally blossoming into the person I want to become, even through the hardships that I have faced; much like trees, that weather the storm and continue to grow and have their own new beginnings season after season. I am grateful to those who have served as my roots and continue to watch me flourish.
