English major, BYU. Artist statement: "This is part of a collection named, No Me Olvides (Forget Me Not in Spanish) inspired from the passage in 1 Nephi 21:14-15, “For can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee, O house of Israel.” In it is represented how the Lord is anxiously reminding us he does not forget us and is pleading us not to forget Him. With this instruction, the No Me Olvides series are born. Each piece comes from a specific verse in the Book of Mormon that highlights what we mustn’t forget about Him. This one comes from the underrated Living Waters spoken of in Lehi’s Dream. While the Tree is highly depicted, the Waters are not. Mirroring the Forget Me Not flower’s plea and the Lord’s highest expression of love asking us to remember, Aguas Vivas speaks the same prayer, “Forget Me Not, for you will find life and love in the fountain of Living Waters.” Medium: colored pencils on paper"
