"Flag of the Fallen"
"One piece of brass in honor of each American who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan.
An American flag made out of spent brass. 6,758 pieces, the official casualty count of Iraq and Afghanistan, (OIF) (OEF)
Left behind the military and contracting work to focus on my art and finish my art degree two years ago. I have received a lot of recognition for my work. The submitted piece has gone viral on Facebook and was invited to the USS Intrepid in New York for Fleet Week and Memorial Day weekend. It has a very large and positive impact in the veteran community especially.
Coping through Art
It has helped me work through my own veteran "issues". As such I am working on creating a Veteran Art therapy program in my area through my alma mater while attending grad school.
