About the Artist
Jhene Erwin (Seattle) received a 2012 GAP award to help cover costs associated with the production and distribution of her film The House I Keep. In The House I Keep we experience the life of the lead character Nicole, as she grapples with her day, six weeks after suffering a miscarriage. Erwin’s mission for the film is to improve the mental health of women and their families mourning miscarriage by providing an identifiable voice through her film. The film has become a platform for discussion and understanding, and hence, an impetus for healing. The House I Keep is on PBS’s Reel NW, and is part of PBS’s 2013 Online Film Festival.
