I am an advocate for the arts in medicine. From the art hanging on the walls of a clinic to the music, dance, and crafts that are woven into patient care, the creative arts play a vital role in healing.
I am passionate about bringing arts into the worlds of medicine and healthcare. I firmly believe in the power of art and its ability to help us process, cope, and connect. From the art installed in clinics and hospitals to the music, dance, and crafts that are woven into patient care and treatment, the creative arts play a vital role in healing.
I am currently a contract artist at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital and loving every minute of it. Click the picture of the stitched heart below to look through the projects I have had the opportunity to do with them so far.
More things to come as I explore the crossroads of my art practice and the inspiring work of healthcare providers, hospitals and research institutions, and especially the work of those dedicated to eliminating health disparities and building an equitable healthcare system.
