Cancer can be hidden inside even when everything appears normal, happy and beautiful on the outside. This artwork is a reminder of the hidden struggles people face and aims to raise the awareness about the deceptive nature of cancer.
Deception can be prevented by recognizing the importance of early detection through the screening process.

It’s the challenges we face as we live our lives that give us strength- a purpose and make us “Wise” to what really matters.
I create art that is pleasing to look at, inspiring and is serving a purpose. I believe in this event as it brings attention to an issue which all of us can relate to personally, whether it’s to a family member or a close friend.
Each and every one of us has someone we love affected by cancer. The monies raised here go to a great cause.

My inspiration is from a photo of a friend’s Manx cat. My process includes painting with acrylic and attaching fur around the edges. I filled in the eyes and painted them, but they can be removed in order to wear it. There is an elastic band attached in order to wear it if desired.

A cancer diagnosis can feel like a death sentence. It is a trial by fire. Rebuilding your life as a survivor is learning to “fill in the blanks”. She is not done yet! She’s just beginning.

This artwork is dedicated to my sister, Joy, who is a breast cancer survivor-twice (due to efficient medical support, caring family and friends, plus her own mental strength). To deal with lengthy treatments, she would soothe her mind by mentally going to her happy place- the beach.
Remembering the feel of the sand, the smell of the sea air and the collection of seashells helped feed her positive attitude.

LOVE AND HOPE.

This tribal alligator mask was inspired by a trip to Marco Islands’ history museum. A carved wooden alligator head was among the artifacts of the Calusa Indians’ display.
Last year, I made a Calusa wildcat mask. I plan to make a set of these Indian artifacts with paper mache’ painted in acrylic to look like carved wood’
