"Dance Upon Adversity" was a really emotional piece for me.

This piece represents my mother, myself, and every generation after us breaking the generational curses of abuse, oppression, poverty, and every other weight that has been on our family's shoulders. It is a representation of taking the tough and the ugly that life has given us and dancing in joy anyway. Here's to my mother, myself, and all of the matriarchs of change within so many family lines, those that Dance Upon Adversity.
