When I read the Art St. Louis call for art for Human Touch, I knew I had the perfect photograph of my dad and I playing tic-tac-toe through the window of his care facility in Illinois. Your Turn was awarded an Honorable Mention.
I also entered Remnants at Art St. Louis, a show where I could use left-over fabric and left-over cold wax and oil strips to weave together a collage of all of the emotions of my summer after losing my dad in May. Creating this piece, which contains photographs under the weaving, helped me process the journey of losses and changes this summer through making art. Summer Threads was also awarded a Honorable Mention.
