Family studies major, BYU. Artist statement: "I was always able to see this story in my mind's eye. The setting of the tower and the garden always struck me as beautiful but filled with so much drama. So that's how I tried to depict it. I left Nephi bare to illustrate his humility, whereas the onlookers are all in cloaks hinting at their pride and the later condemnation of Seantum by his cloak. The garden is bright and full of life as a symbol of the promise God has given us that as we are righteous we shall prosper in the land. The importance of prayer is also highly emphasized within the piece as the whole exchange revolves around the figure on the tower, and his physical height within the piece represents his closeness to God. This piece was created using, yarn, leather, glass beads, metal scales, chainmail, embroidery floss, wool, and cloth."
