"Acacia, the subject of this portrait and my daughter, is sweet but strong. Behind her gentle eyes are a playground of ideas and emotions that she keeps protected. Finding light within herself despite today's modern darkness, she discovers a strength inside to feel safe amidst uncertainty. Acacia is an ode to those of us who are vulnerable yet self-reliant, never losing that hint of childhood wonder behind our aging eyes." - JEREMY MANYIK
