Aimee Rayner, a parent of a Veritas student writes: "Through my work, I hope to transport the viewer back to a calming time in their life or memories of a time surrounded by nature. I hope to help viewers forget about their everyday stresses and ground them by bringing a sense of peaceful reflection. Having personally dealt with anxiety, I know how important creating a calming environment can be. My goal is to create art that warms your home and soothes your soul. "

Kevin Johnson a parent of Veritas students is graciously providing the food for us. He writes: "I started this venture 8 years ago right after we adopted our twins and soon realized that the time demand was just too great. Now that they're older and more self-sufficient I am excited to be back at it! And I can't wait to serve you with the same excitement and enthusiasm that has driven me my entire life. "
