Crowns of Courage
The Crowns of Courage project celebrates women fighting cancer. Over the course of a year, 22 women undergoing cancer treatment visited my studio for temporary henna tattoos, professional makeup, and a photo session. The project was critically acclaimed and was a top five popular vote finalist for this prestigious ArtPrize 9 event. After Artprize 9, the artwork was on display at the Lemmen Holton Cancer Center atrium from May 2018 to August 2019. The Crowns of Courage display will have a new home later this year.
