What a fabulous way to wrap up the year: a group show with my mom! Here we are during the opening night of the annual Honouring Utah Artists Exhibition at Alpine Art & Frame. She stands next to her "Madonna" and my abstract "Heart Space". Indeed she does.
For more about my mom's work & how much she's influenced me, read this blog post.
My mom is a seriously talented artist. For as long as I can recall, she has encouraged me to indulge my creative disposition. I recognize that I owe so much of who I am and what I've accomplished to her encouragement & support. My dad also deserves to be credited here - for different reasons, but I'll honor him in a different post.
It's been a dream of mine for quite some time to participate in an art show with my mom. Finally the opportunity has arrived! Join us on Friday, December 7th from 6 - 9 pm at Alpine Art & Frame for their Annual Honoring Utah Artists Exhibition. Our paintings are wildly different, but hanging my work next to my mom's is an honor, a privilege, and quite literally a dream come true for me.

This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
