About the artwork:
"I created this piece at the very beginning of our anatomy course. Working on the pair of lungs provided me with an opportunity to process the unique and challenging experiences of anatomy lab. I have always found creating art to be therapeutic and hope to keep this a part of my life during and after medical school."
