My Story:

My journey as an artist and art therapist has led me to explore the sacred path we each follow through life. I am a fiber artist whose work has been based on religious garments. Using these articles of clothing, I have explored the sacredness of each person and their journey through life. The sacredness of each person is manifested in my work with cancer patients and their families as an art therapist at The Cancer Counseling Center located at St. Luke’s Medical Center. I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with several of the artist survivors of the Rare Chair Affair 2005! Each of these women has shared their story through the creation of a unique piece of art that is an expression of their own sacred journey through life. It has been a privilege to share part of that journey with each of them.
