In 1990, cancer became a catalyst for change in my family when my mother was diagnosed with an advanced endometrial tumor. Watching her struggle to maintain the consistency of her life against the inevitable force of her cancer was, for me, a difficult and unforgettable passage. In the aftermath of her death, I began to make paintings of my mother as a child, as a young woman, and as an older woman, when she was ill. These reconstructed paintings/phototransfers/weavings not only helped me to deal with my grief, but they are also a tribute to her memory and a reminder of what there is both to lose and to cherish.
