About the Artwork + Radical Rest
"I chose this piece because having cultural roots is therapeutic and relaxing to many, sometimes we don’t find the time to do the things we love that calms us and brings us peace, standing on the frontlines is tiring and takes a lot of energy. Beading helps bring back those thoughts and why you do what you do on the frontlines"
