“The Hope Suite”: My “Hope Suite” is a series of 44 original collages on paper that I created between 2008 and 2014. Each 18” x 24“ work contains the word “hope” in a distinct world language. My intent in this project is to create peaceful connections between diverse global cultures. It is in essence, a box of hope, at a time when it is much needed.
