An Artistic Redemption: One of Riz’s favorite movies is “The Shawshank Redemption” because of the “brilliant acting and a great story.” One of his favorite books is “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron. “It was a textbook for one of my dance classes in college and taught me principles that also related to my work in horticulture and landscape design.”
