AncesTree Project

For The Woodlands Arts Council:

Commissioned & Completed: The AncesTree Project, an ink and acrylic piece on 3-foot-diameter round canvas.

Neighbors in the community who attended the inaugural Woodlands Cultural and Heritage Festival wrote their memories, traditions, cultures and heritages – 260 personal stories – onto paper leaves hung on a papier mâché tree at the festival. I was commissioned to write all of those shared stories into a more permanent piece, which represents the community’s diversity entwined and growing together. The piece is installed in the Arts Council's office.

Houston Methodist

Houston Methodist The Woodlands, as a new Houston Methodist hospital location, commissioned a triptych in 2017 with all of their new employees' signatures. Each of their 500 employees and staff members signed one of these trees. The hospital's mission statement and goals are woven into the remaining positive space. This triptych is installed on the third floor, facing the front lobby.
