While studying in London, I was tasked with a challenge: The Unlovely Challenge. The challenge was to take something often thought of as unlovely and create something beautiful from it. War immediately came to my mind. War literally and figuratively melts away all that you have known in this life. I took this idea of the fires of war melting away our homes, our memories, our possessions, and our lives to create the Nar Collection. The Nar Collection is my way of reminding the world that there is always something beautiful that remains: hope.
