This is a piece that is near and dear to my heart.  It was inspired by my sister Dana, who has been fighting Breast Cancer for the past 8 months.  I made hundreds of tiny pink breast cancer ribbons to construct the skirt, using tiny staples to hold the ribbons together. The staples are to sympbolize the fact that no matter how feminine a woman is she must become as tough as she's ever been to enure the harsh treatments after diagnosis. 
this piece won the People's Choice Award at the International Butterfly Festival this weekend! It was the first time showing my work in a public forum so I was pretty pumped to win this award!
