Artist statement

‘Here is a photo I took of my sister holding a picture of my great great-grandfather William Joiner who bravely fought at Vimy Ridge. This year is the 100th anniversary of this great battle in Canadian History. We owe our freedom to these brave soldiers who fought in many wars. Today and our future may have been quite different if they had not fought for our country. This is why my vision of the future for myself and for all Canadians is to never forget the sacrifices of our soldiers.’
– Kassia
