Thanks to Trio, Shari Smith, and curator, Liz McKay, for including me in the 2020 Trio exhibit. Trio starts with a book that’s given to a visual artist and songwriter. The artists write a song and create a work of art inspired by the book they read, fulfilling their TRIO. Each TRIO will travel to museums, galleries, and literary events throughout the following year.
It was a challenging and rewarding opportunity to create a work of art based on another artist’s work. The book I received was “Darling Girl,” written by the very talented Terry Watkins.

“Darling Girl” is a powerful story of how a young girl sees the struggle of mental illness take over her mother and its effects on the family. You can purchase a copy on Amazon or visit the author’s page for more info, http://www.terryhwatkins.com.
