In this collection we are going to look at our desires to be free. The need to be apart of something more than what we as humans can create. This collection shows us how amazing the feeling of being in the mountains can be. Paintings, pictures and even a sculpture let us be in the artists mind's eye putting us there to feel the awe inspiring feelings of being in the mountains.
