This specially curated exhibition benefitting The ALS Association Golden West Chapter, is my response to my sister’s ALS diagnosis in July of 2020. Sadly, I live too far away to help her on a regular basis, and I wanted to do something meaningful for her and for others who are facing the challenges of ALS. This exhibition is an effort to raise awareness, which, in turn, will help fund research to more effectively diagnose, treat, manage, and prevent ALS. Art is empowering, so as an artist, I am leaning into my craft, and collaborating with others to educate and build awareness about ALS.

Learn about how Hope Lives: Art for ALS came to be in this interview with Allison Johnston (aka - Fuzzy Grapefruit on Instagram) and me in an interview on April 30, 2022. The topic was how to organize an event for a cause with an artistic lens. Where do you start? How do you find support? And why is it so important to schedule days off?
