Biodiveristy and Conservation major, BYU. Artist statement: "My piece depicts the first part of Alma 58, an important chapter to me while on my mission. I was studying the war chapters and felt an answer to my prayer regarding this story. A small band of Nephites does all they can to maintain the cities they have recaptured from the Lamanites without receiving any provisions (even though they have been petitioning for them). Suffering from starvation, they pray to God for help. God gives them hope and comfort as they wait for better things to come. Inspired by the 11th-century Bayeux Tapestry, I thought it would be interesting and revealing to create a work that uses similar methods to retell a piece of history, objectively and spiritually. The piece is felted using needles and wool."
