In my “Guardian” mix media collage piece I was exploring my personal experience and emotions. During a brief time that was difficult and confusing because I was unable to see my nephew who like a son to me. I went from seeing him everyday or every weekend then to not all which hurt me deeply. I wanted the audience to feel loss, confusion and frustration. However, there is hopefulness that I will see him again. I will always be there for him. No matter what.
