Dear Navigators, Social Workers, Administrators, and Clinical Staff,

At JONS, we value the art of practicing medicine. We also value Art as Medicine to lift the human spirit. To honor these values, we have established an Artist in Residency program to showcase the works of art by artists touched by cancer.

An artist selected for a residency will have their art featured in the JONS online Art Gallery as well as on 3 covers of JONS. Artists’ stories and/or personal statements are featured on the gallery in the Meet the Artist section.

It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to our current Artist in Residency, photographer Ellen Hoverkamp. Ellen arranges plants and natural objects, then creates botanical and still life photographs using a flatbed scanner as a camera. In April 2019, Ellen was diagnosed with stage IV, ALK-positive, non–small-cell adenocarcinoma lung cancer. Her motto is, “Despite all, the beauty of nature prevails.” We extend our deepest gratitude to Ellen for allowing us to tell her story and feature her work.

Whether you are a caregiver or a survivor, we would love the opportunity to partner with you, tell your story, and showcase your work. We invite you to explore the JONS online Art Gallery and invite artists touched by cancer to apply for residency at jons-online.com/art-gallery.

Sincerely,

Lillie Digital Signature
