The human body is an intricate and

powerful machine. A white blood cell, the

mechanism with the responsibility of protecting the body,

in an instant has the potential to mutate into a hazardous force.

My husband, Andy Williams, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid

Leukemia on December 18, 2012. During the process of his treatment, my role

as his partner transformed to include that of the primary caregiver. Amidst the surreal

reality of hospital living, our perceptions of the cyclesof life and death were questioned and

altered. Our response was to transform his hospital room into our creative space: Andy with his

music and drawing, me with my sketchbook and traveling watercolors. This was the birth of a body of work

that has evolved throughout our journey, through Andy's passing on December 26, 2013, and the aftermath of sifting

through the complexityof loss and mourning while the world continues to move forward around me. This is an ongoing

body of work that is very much still a work in progress.
