The third of four hearts, this one was created to represent my mother. I know my Mom as a complex, creative lady who has ridden the waves of a turbulent life with aplomb and grace; most of the time. The chaotic, shades of brown and purple background represents Mom’s earthbound environment which never seemed quite the right setting for such an ethereal type as my Mom. To emphasize her nature I used a raw, white silk for the heart with shades of pink added to it. In the centre is a seed like, amber bead and stitches of green and blue silk around and inside the heart.
I can’t ever imagine being the creative, tenacious, sensitive person I’ve become without her influence in my life.
