ARTIST'S STATEMENT

Francine Houston

I titled it "The Story of My Life" because I wrote a poem about what happen in my life. One of the most devastating things that happen were I was diagnosed with a life threatening disease called Lupus. Lupus is an autoimmune disease, which is not contagious. It makes your body attack itself. Anyway I showed the effects of the Lupus by showing pictures from the age seventeen to twenty-one. But also in the poem I wrote how I got healed from it too. The pictures show the phases of Lupus and the phases of healing. I also have music notes, tambourines, and an open bible. The music notes represented that I like music and like to sing. The tambourines represent that I like to dance. The open bible represents that IÕm spiritual and I like to go to church.
