Portrait of a New Life is about finding strength and moving on after a devastating loss. Twelve years ago, I was fi rst diagnosed with cancer. During those first two years, my art was about fear, loss and regeneration. My work always has been autobiographical, and since I use myself as a model, my sculptures have only one breast.
