Art can remind us, every day, of what is beautiful and important in life.
Painting scenes of hope, grace and light was one of the ways I helped myself to move through immense grief when my sister died at the age of 20. I painted what I wanted feel, to hear and to see. I tried to capture the little miracles and glimpses of beauty I noticed even amidst very painful times.
Creating images of a benevolent world full of blessings, support and connection, reminds me that there is goodness and deep, deep love at work in my life. And then when each painting finds a home with someone who loves it, I feel delighted knowing it is sharing some of that goodness with others.
