"I commissioned Mary-Jo due to her demonstrated dedication and passion to her craft . More importantly, I trusted her ability to interpret my vision and create a unique work of art with it. I am using this piece as a focal point in my home and absolutely love that I can tell the story of why this piece was brought to life. It will be something I hand down to my children because it is so timeless and telling, not just my story, but of resilience and survival in the face of desperation."
