Artist statement:
The inspiration for this work is the Foundation's ability to transform the simplicity of money into a myriad of miracles that enlighten the lives of so many students, professors, and donors. Money drives determination. Money gives time. Money enables quality teaching. Money builds a new library. Money grows futures. The Mount Royal University Foundation works wonders even with pennies.

Artist bio:
I’m a hobby artist with a passion for oils, craving the peace and tranquility of the painting process. I find it can be as restorative as meditation. During the day, I work at the Foundation at Mount Royal.
