ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

 I wanted to start off by giving acknowledgements. For without all the people involved, my work would never be made possible. I could not have done it without each and every one of you and I am eternally grateful.

In particular those friends and family whose helping hands (and faces) aided in the creation of each piece, thank you, thank you, thank you! My parents who let me take over their garage time and time again, and my dear, dear husband who lifted heavy objects and watched our children so I could live my dream, I love you forever.

My photographer, model, sister, and oldest and dearest friend: Samantha. How do I even express my deepest feelings and joy at working through this project with you. I only hope I can help to bring your dreams to life as much as you have mine.

And a many sincere and professional thanks to Brad Kramer of Writ & Vision, J. Kirk Richards and the Vision of the Arts Board, Rosalynde Welch, Micah Christensen and the Zion Art Society, Laura Allred Hurtado, curators and staff at the Springville Museum of Art, Paige Crossland Anderson, and Page Turner. Along with the incredible community of artists and creators here in Utah, your advice and support have been incalculable. I could never thank you enough!

With sincerest thanks,

Megan
