My Grandmother's Guilt



Mixed media

Artist's Insight:

Inspired by family folklore and true events, this mixed media work (photo of body painted muse, acrylic paint and ink) represents the countless children birthed and buried during the course of the last 150 years of the Dominion of Canada. This work explores our mothers' sacrifices and the sad reality that women were expected to be pregnant nearly constantly to populate our growing country.
