The 20th anniversary of 9/11 is here

I have many reasons to tear up with this anniversary even though I didn’t personally know anyone who died that day. I am from NY, and NYC is one of my favorite places to visit. 9/11 also happens to be my birthday. I knew the world had changed on that day. It was like our innocence was gone, and we would never be the same. In addition, two weeks after 9/11 I ended up in the emergency room with a pulmonary embolism. Here are two artworks I created with 9/ll in mind: one a few years ago, called, “Out of the Fire”, and one this summer called “Summer in the City” (One World Trade Center in the background) with hope for a better time.
