"I really enjoyed creating this piece; children are the hope of the future and if anything represents peace, it is children releasing doves into the air! I wanted to depict both genders – representing all of mankind in the same noble effort. The arched backs are congruent with the energy and design of the piece, and holding olive branches and roses (further symbols of peace) brought in the element of nature. Peace is something our world cries out for and as an artist and a father, I believe it starts with our children. If our youth have the opportunity to grow up in peaceful and loving homes and are taught early of the need for harmony and concern – the entire world, the entire universe, will spin in a brighter and higher direction. In my sculpture, the children’s bodies form simple arches, and arches are the beginning of circles and circles are simple and beautiful forms that represent peace, harmony and eternity."

"Child of Peace" showcases a bronze sculpture of a young female figure. The sculpture captures a moment of dynamic motion. In her extended hand, she holds a bird aloft. The bird's wings are spread wide as if taking flight from her fingers. Her other arm is bent at the elbow, bringing her hand close to her chest, where she holds a bouquet of roses.The base of the sculpture is a simple, sturdy plinth that provides stable support for the dynamic form above. Overall, the artwork evokes themes of peace, joy, and the hope for future generations.
