Healing Garden Railing Commissioned by Norton Hospital, 2011 36’ x 8’ x 18’ This area was designed specifically with cancer patients in mind. There is a growing belief in the union of healthcare and artwork, and I strongly believe in the ability of the visual arts to bring peace and balance to a troubled mind. The texture of this work invites one to experience the forged iron on both a visual and tactile level.
