Dreams and wishes…
My dad was a dreamer. He forever had plans and projects. He was hard-working from a young age, having grown up in Appalachia during the depression. A man of great fortitude. I loved being a part of his dreams.
He was always a vegetable gardener like his mother before him. If he wasn’t planting or harvesting, he was making a list of the seeds he wanted to order for next season. I still remember the last order we made together. When he died at 94 and 3/4 and his home and property were sold, I realized how special those times in the garden together had been. I had an overwhelming desire to find my “garden” in this world. After an extensive search, and numerous circumstances that were blessings in disguise, my husband and I found 3 acres of property and we are going to have a farm of sorts. I’m looking forward to spending time with my dad and grandmother in my garden.
Dreams and Wishes, Birds and Fishes will showcase the artwork that has been inspired by all the blessings in my life and the big dreams that make each day exciting and full of possibilities. I wanted this collection to be dreamy and full of surprises, with love and hope and lots of fun 2D and 3D art that expresses the wonders that I encounter each day.’
