Postcards is a mixed media series on small postcard-like wooden panels dedicated to women in my life who have passed on including my maternal grandmother Edith, my mother Patricia, and ancestors I only know through stories such as Great Aunt Sofia from Hungary as well as other ancestors from the U.S (Ohio) and Italy. I create these paintings as postcards across time in the absence of present day deep family roots. Our memories live on when people leave us, and these relationships can be nurtured as a supportive presence rather than becoming a source of weighted baggage.
