I am supporting Honour Her.....
My grandmother (mum's mum) passed away from Ovarian Cancer in 1999. Even though it has been 20+ years since her passing, we still miss her everyday. I was only young but still have fond memories of her laugh, her smile and her big warm hugs. I wanted to create a piece that honours the woman she was - bright, vibrant and loving. As kids we were always in her garden picking her flowers so though it was nice to depict these memories in my abstract.
