  1. Thanks! Her work is vibrant and haunting. As soon as I read this link, I bought her art book, Breast Cancer Journal, with a forward by Susan Love. It's amazing how an artist's imagery can effect you, her paintings seem to sum up a lot of our feelings about dealing with cancer.

    I can't wait to get the book! Great info!


  2. Thanks for the comment Jennifer...I sometimes struggle with how much art is appropriate for the site, do people find it relevant?
    So I am really glad you liked it.
    I may just put that book in the amazon store, but every time I add something I mess up the margins!
