I honor them!

Breast cancer is gender neutral.
Look into my eyes to see who could be the next victim.
Artist : Sara Barlow
I fell in love with Sugar Skulls five years ago. The beauty includes the detail and how different each piece becomes.
Artist : Elisabeth Ferber
The peacock is one of the most beautiful birds on earth. This mask is a reminder to all going through the trauma of breast cancer …"be strong and show your personal beauty and strength". Embrace your inner beauty and be "Pretty as a Peacock" forever and ever! This mask can be displayed or worn.
Artist: Kim Levine
I was inspired by a deck of Alice in Wonderland playing cards. The fantastical characters, delightful though non-sensical story and playful imagery lend themselves to unlimited creative expression.
I created this piece as a celebration of the beauty that can exist within the madness of our collective human existence. We are ALL mad.
Artist: Emily Lewis
I wanted something that didn't look like a human face. Liked the tiger look as opposed to a cat. Put an elastic on it. Can be worn or hung on the wall. Painted with acrylics, added faux fur and plastic "whiskers".
Artist : Dodi Truenow
The mask form was built up with paper mache. Drywall
compound was added, sculpted and painted to resemble carved wood. It's creation was inspired by a recent trip to Marco Island Historical Museum, featuring Calusa Indian artifacts.
Being a Florida native and nature enthusiast, I love all things Florida. This mask is based on watercolors painted by Wells Sawyer during the 1896 excavation. "Wild Cat" is the first in a series of Calusa masks and artifacts I will create.
Artist : Wilhelmina Korevaar
Written onto every face are story lines that tell a woman's story. Cancer interrupts the continuity of lines and stories may renew after treatment.
Artist : Louise M. Gardella
I had breast cancer in 1998. After having a lumpectomy, I have been cancer free. My inspiration came from my hope that we can be able to say that cancer (breast) can be wiped out in the very near future.
