:: Memories of a Life ::
I created "Memories of a Life" as a response to a deeply sorrowful time in my family and my life. At a moment when all seemed to come crashing down - the ending of a fairytale - this painting visited me and was etched in my mind.
After two years of slowly meeting with this painting, I have completed this portrait and am so relieved to have it fully realized in my life. "Memories of a Life" is a look back on one's days spent in the company of love and companionship. It is also a moment for those left behind to look up and say farewell - for now.
I am thankful to have the opportunity to paint my feelings and experiences. This is where all my work comes from and how each painting, drawing, mixed media starts. A spark followed by a flash of images, a visual representation of how I feel.
