Description

Ashley Woo Lee, an occupational therapy student based in Loma Linda, California, provided the cover art for the Winter 2017 issue of the Open Journal of Occupational Therapy (OJOT) (Figure 1). The piece, titled “Tree of Life” is a “11 x 14” drawing made from mixed medium. As a child living in Korea, drawing was a favorite pastime for Ashley. After her family relocated to the United States, art became Ashley’s primary means for self-expression. When a career in art was not an option, the field of occupational therapy satisfied Ashley’s artistic and scientific interests. In a recent interview, Ashley shared how she uses her talents to help others participate in meaningful occupations.
