Ashley Carlson's Artist Statement:
This piece is just a small fraction of the strength and courage that Flora shared with me about her journey with Lobular Breast Cancer. Meeting her and learning more about her I immediately was drawn to how she turned something so personal into a cause that she could help other women, and give her time and energy to help with the fight against it.
The painting represents those layers of her path. The cancer (images of her actual pathology slide) at the bottom. foliage and flowers blooming from it and her and her yoga practice in the center, balanced and strong. swirled together as she continued to go through all of the feelings and continuing to grow and give to others. I've been humbled to learn from her and hope that this painting represents just a small piece of the beauty she has.
