This Saturday I am having a memorial for my mother who died after a brief but intense battle with lung and brain cancer in January.
My mother was an amazing person, I could not have asked for more supportive parents, and she always believed that I had a knack for being able to listen to my inner voice and trust it. That has always stuck with me. She was definitely one of my muses in my works, and still is.
This cut paper piece from 2007 basically started me on the path of having a career as a gallery artist. She was amazing because she would allow me to present aspects of her that I knew that she would not share publicly. I miss her dearly.
