Additional Info


Microbiology major, BYU. Artist statement: "Created using Midjourney, iterating with the following prompt: "Happy native american woman in a white robe, walks with a young boy while teaching him, symbolic watercolor back view. Luminous human spirit walks with them." My parents are divorced, and my heart goes out to the stripling warriors; I spent a lot of formative spiritual time with my mother. I wanted to create an image that captured the love, the simplicity, the beauty, the individuality, and just the pure motherhood of those women. As an aside, I realize that using AI for making art is controversial. I don't intend to sow discord. Judge this however you feel is best."
