Come to the Table


Sometimes, when I visit different floors in the hospital, it seems like it is a no-patient-day; people being released, mothers-to-be in long term labor and delivery aren’t feeling too well and children in Pediatric Oncology and Hematology are sleeping. This is an invitation to return to my table in the lobby and to the notes that visitors and employees continue to leave in my clay boat: small, white pieces of paper penciled with notes of hope, trust, longing and despair.

October 2015


Working at Carilion hospital as an artist-in-residence can be dangerous for the heart;

I fell in love, twice, over the past several weeks.


It was a beautiful fall day last October. Sunny, warm, and a perfect day for a relaxing bike ride.  As I loaded my bike into the car, I felt anything but relaxed. This bike ride was to try to forget the stress that I had been under the past week. It was following me around like a dark cloud. I drove to the greenway, a place where I had often come to unwind.
