University Hospitals Commission

This commission was captivating for the fact that parents of newborns would not be able to actually even hold their brand new babies. My art is hung right outside of the family lounge and my hope is that they will touch the art, in it's dimension and soft almost skin like quality and be able to lose themselves within the art and transport their feelings.
