Thank you to all the student interns from UC Davis who helped me in the studio including Rumiko Adame, Betty Chen, Douagee Cheng, Maria Duran-Rubio, Elizabeth Fries, Anna-Lucia Garibay, Christine Knobel, Stephani Pi, Lisa Romero, and Mai Vang. Mai Vang was also employed to wrap hangers and Natalie Lam to clean up the digital photographs I took of all the collected red dresses.

I also had the privilege to work with Karina Bergmans, a wonderful artist from Ottawa,Canada who also references health and the body in her work. Karina received a fellowship from the Canadian government to do a mentorship residency with me. She also documented the experience on her blog so if you want a behind the scenes look at my studio and the work in progress I suggest you click on the links below.
