This painting holds the spirit of playfulness & sweetness that reminds me of my grandmother. Losing her earlier this year continues to ripple out in ways through my emotions and psyche. Seeing her legacy as matriarch of her family, through my mother, down to me and to my 2 girls.

I can see how she was an anchor for my family standing in my past & how my hopes for my girls are my anchors for the future.

From my LIKE FAMILY August 2018 collection. 

These paintings continue my exploration of spirals as an anchor amongst the 'mess' of chaos & colour. 
Life is messy & chaotic, so is going after your dreams. Whether that is building a business, raising a family or a combination or everything. 

There IS beauty in the mess! 

If you allow it, art can be an anchor for self-expression in your life. 

This collection was created in the months after losing my grandmother - a matriarch of the family whose legacy continues through my mother and me. That lineage of strong women, family values & fierce determination are what I hope to bring with me through mothering my 2 girls.
That legacy is an anchor from the past (in my grandmother) runs through to my girls as anchors for my hopes in the future. And I stand here in the present as the vessel for it all.

May these paintings serve as inspiration for you to find your anchors & joy in connection with your family -- whether by blood or choices, family are a spiral of focus that helps us see the beauty in the mess!
