Charla has designed Hope based on the inspiring theme of Hope is my Star. The collage and pen and ink drawings which weave through the lettering depict the Hawthorne tree foliage. Through the ages the Hawthorne has been the symbol of Hope. Quotations from the 1600’s, 1700’s and 1800’s are also incorporated into the design.
