"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

“I look in the mirror through the eyes of the child that was me.”― Judy Collins

Make art about childhood shame, about seeing that hurt child in your adult eyes, about healing shame.

― Cynthia Bourgeault, Love is Stronger than Death: The Mystical Union of Two Souls

 

Make art about the eternal nature of Love.
