Artist Statement:

Jimmy Carter is a man whom I have admired for many years. He was the first president I was able to vote for back in 1976. Over the years he has proven to be an amazing activist and negotiator for peace and human rights throughout the world. Since artists get to make art that inspires and moves them, I chose to make a piece honoring Mr. Carter. Two of the drawings represent him as President Carter; the third one is when he received the Nobel Peace Prize. I hope I will have the chance to meet him one day.
