Artist's Description

“When we plant the seeds of self-doubt, only noxious weeds sprout. When we limit ourselves with low expectations, the growth of the tree of happiness immediately ceases. The power of growth, of improvement, the power to overcome all stagnation and break through every obstacle and transform a barren wasteland into a verdant field-that unstoppable power of hope resides right there in your own heart. It will well up from the rich earth of your innermost being when you face the future without doubt or fear: “I can do more. I can grow. I can become a bigger and better human being”-life and faith are a never-ending struggle to grow." – Daisaku Ikeda

My childhood experiences included severe mental illness, sexual abuse and a lot of fear and anger. Years of therapy did little to improve my mental health and ability to survive in this world. Then I found a spiritual practice that focuses on “human revolution” or transforming ones own life in order to create a life of value and happiness. Despite these experiences in my early years, I was able to gain self-confidence and gradually learn to love myself enough to be able to reach out and help others. My spiritual path provides me with courage and hope – the two most vital ingredients for happiness.
