Artist Statement

I watched a beautiful woman pass from this world and watched her daughters experience the process. I also became pregnant shortly after that experience and this exhibition theme reminded me of the legacy Mothers leave when they pass, and the legacy Mothers create when they welcome their daughters into this world. Whether it is positive or negative, the process of being a mother is beautiful to me and I wanted to show that in my work for this exhibition. I added the landscape in my work because I find that the relationship of Mother to her children and grandchildren, across every nation is also an underlying concept here that many miss, and it is an important one, certainly one of the most important ones. This concept of being a Mother in the bush inspired me.
