Sharing in your stories.

One of my favourite parts of commission work is the privilege of capturing a special memory, moment or person in someone else’s life story. It can also feel like a huge responsibility, which requires a lot of prayer and respect.  This fall I was envited to create a work for a beautiful hearted woman who wanted to honour her mothers memory with a portrait of her home and garden as a gift to her father. With the memories she shared, together we concluded adding her parents to the work would be the perfect touch to breath life into the piece. 

I’m so greatful after each commission like this one to have created joy when often there is still so much sadness.  Each commission has its own story, its own heart behind the story. That’s why I do this.
