Reflections of Hope: Armistice 1918 was featured in Forbes Magazine, Parade Magazine, the KC Star Newspaper, The Star Tribune paper from Minneapolis, KC Studio Magazine, and on five news stations. Hope you got a chance to see it in person!! The poppy Installation at National World War I Museum & Memorial has now been removed. To buy a poppy, contact the Museum at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Come visit with me in my studio to hear about my latest activism projects - working with Mothers In Charge to help stop local violence. This work has inspired the Balloon Series/works on paper about the emotional side of losing a loved one to violence, inspired by the tradition of letting balloons go in remembrance of a lost relative. The "Anger" piece was recently chosen to be in the permanent collection at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
