"The Moon and Her Memories" 48x57

Artist statement:

“THE TENDER YEAR” (The Four Seasons)

This body of work was inspired by old family letters and photographs.  It tells a story of hardship and despair and yet a thread of hope and beauty is woven through the individual pieces.  For a number of years two themes have dominated my work: The Four Seasons and The Little Christening Dress. Both employ the idea of time as their subject.  This idea continues with “THE TENDER YEAR”.
