Artist Advisors

Carrie Danhieux PooleNatalie Akins

We are so fortunate this year to have Carrie, an art therapist, and Natalie, an art therapist in training, to work with some of our survivor artists this year! Carrie was enthusiastic about participating because “as an art therapist, I believe in the healing power of the creative process” and feels honored to be part of the Rare Chair Affair. Natalie and Carrie, in their work, are soliciting words from patients that describe the cancer experience and using these expressions, are collaborating on a very special chair for our auction!
