She says, "What inspired me first throughout this mannequin process was my health and my heart, I had some health issues in the beginning and wanted to use them to my advantage creatively. I thought about myself and other women going through what I was going through, and wanted to express myself in a poetic way...
"The poems are all inspirational poems about loving yourself and being strong about who you are. To me this means finding strength in your own way, not in ways that other perceive you 'should' be strong; but being strong for you.

From The Mannequin Project site: "The Mannequin Project consists of 14 established local artists. Each has created a work of art from an existing recycled mannequin form or produced one from scratch with their own unique approach, technique and mediums. The result is a varied and exciting interpretation of the humanoid form." Read more about The Mannequin Project, which is a part of the Art Meets Fashion annual events.
Art Meets Fashion is a collaborative event sponsored by San Diego Visual Artists Network and FOCUS (Fashion Opportunities Connect US) with pieces displayed throughout San Diego.
