This piece began with drawing the figure of the tree woman on foam core and then cutting it out to use as a stencil. I love to dance and when I dance I feel grounded, confident, joyful, and fully in my body.  I didn’t dance for years, as I felt hindered by my body image.  I’m far enough along on my journey to appreciate my body and to dance because I love it.
