When I decided to sign up for Brushes with Cancer I was apprehensive, not sure of what to expect. After meeting Jamie for the first time I immediately felt at ease, like I was talking to someone I have known for years. Jamie is a kind, patient, humorous, courageous, and extremely generous person. Jamie’s journey, and Jamie as a person, are so multifaceted - every stage has been made up of so many different pieces both dark and light. In our conversations, Jamie demonstrated how powerful community and conversation can be.
Jamie and I connected on so many things but when I saw her excitement for the artwork she makes, I decided one of the best ways I could get to know her better is by using some of the artmaking processes that bring her joy, like diamond art. I thought of the exchange between light and dark, and worked to incorporate the activities, places, and ideas that make up Jamie’s experiences.
