Both my grandmorthers helped shape the woman I am today. They handed down the art of sewing, the love that goes into making food, compassion, what is means to be powerful and loving all at once. This piece honors our grandmothers’ role in our lives as young women. The sacred and the meaningful happen in moments with our grandmothers. This piece was originally created for Mother’s Day 2008 and now is available as a hand made screen print.
