When I was recovering from cancer and unsure of my survival I made this image called the "Transference of Motherhood." Male sea horses carry their young and this sea horse was a gift from my husband. With this image I entrusted the care of our daughters to him as I healed and tried to find a way to live in a body that had been invaded, then cut, slashed, poisoned and burned in the name of survival. With this image I entrusted him with surrogate motherhood.
