Far & Away I, 2/10, 40 x 60 inches, archival photograph mounted on canvas was installed in the permanent collection of Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute in the chemotherapy lobby.


Far & Away I was installed in the chemotherapy lobby to help the patients in their healing process. As they walk into the lobby sitting area and view the photograph, they are transported to the beach and sea -evoking wonderful memories of their times at the beach.


There was a wonderful collaboration working with Rebecca Applebaum, Director of Marketing. We reviewed several locations, and when we walked into the chemotherapy lobby, we both knew this was where it needed to be. As soon as it was placed in this location, the patients and staff were commenting that they felt transported to the ocean. The patients commented that the photograph had a calming presence.

Additional Information

This project was so very fulfilling to me. As an artist I create the work from my self expression. When the work is exposed to a larger audience and can help evoke emotions, it brings the work to a higher level. It gave me such great satisfaction to know that this photograph is helping others.
