Teaching Artist

The butterfly in this piece represents teens’ transformed selves as the result of a year in treatment; it is feasting on pollen made up of words describing what nourished them while in residence -- support, fun, rewarding, rules. The left third of the piece depicts a thunderstorm representing their life before entering the program. The right third shows the hard climb of treatment as they help each other up a sturdy tree to see their beautiful, new “view”.
