November 1st , 2019 marked one year since receiving the news of NED (no evidence of disease) status after treatment for ovarian cancer. I decided to celebrate by making a three-panel altarpiece to praise God for my health and his tender care.
Hezekiah, a king of ancient Judah, became dear to me during treatment thanks to my nephew. The account of Hezekiah's illness and recovery gave me reminders of God's goodness. Read the whole story >>

The concept of milestones took on new meaning for me during treatment for ovarian cancer in 2018. I took time to note and celebrate points of progress of all kinds—medically, physically, spiritually, emotionally, relationally. There were mega-milestones like hitting the halfway point in chemo and tiny ones like simply reaching the end of a bag of whatever-platin during an infusion. Celebrating kept me present to the moment and boosted momentum to keep moving forward. I hope everyone who views it is reminded to see progress and moments worth celebrating all around. It now hangs in my gyn onc's office, the incredible Dr. Rebecca Stone who understands these milestones like no one else.
Gold Over Twilight
The Joy of the Lord is My Strength
Always Being Made New
Just under 4 inches square, this little painted prayer makes my heart sing. Over cobalt blue I collaged gold leaf and strips of dried palette paint. I was inspired to make this for someone going through a difficult time. He told me the story of his daughter's bold battle with ovarian cancer and her now even bolder life. My own father passed before my ovarian cancer hit so to hear what it was like for him - his pain as well as his fatherly pride for her faith and bravery - was a powerful encouragement. Even though I placed each piece myself, deliberation and delight in equal measure, it feels more like it was given to me than that I crafted it. I pray it is a blessing.
