My name is Sgt. Joshua Farris – United States Marine Corps OEF-OIF. I’ve spent my entire life as an artist. I’ve also spent the last 20 years of my life traveling the United States and portions of the world. There is nothing that gives me a sense of peace more than being in nature; being near the mountains, the water, the ocean, and lakes. I currently live in San Francisco California and the art is just as good there, however the inspiration is stolen at every opportunity. Honoring our veterans has shown me a new wave of patience, a new feeling of peace, and the great source of camaraderie. I hope to someday return and show my thanks the instructors, the board members, and everyone who
participates this is an experience of a
lifetime. It is an opportunity I will never forget.
