Artist’s Statement

My purpose with this design is to promote unity and respect among people of all religions. The background that fades from green to a white circle in the center, along with my six illustrations representing religions placed in a circular form all reflect the sense of harmony I wish to convey. Respect and unity is not something that can be forced. I want my use of the word ‘invite’ to communicate to the viewer that there is always an opportunity for acceptance, but that it is a choice for each one of us whether we accept and embrace it. Doing this is the action that will lead to the goal of unity and respect among people of all religions.
