“Landscape of Life”
Acrylic paint and paint marker on canvas.
Artist Statement: In meeting with my inspiration, Kandis, I quickly learned about the growth and strength that emerged for her through caregiving for her mother. As we began to get to know one another, she shared stories about her journey as a caregiver and the impact of this role on her life.
The artwork is an attempt at sharing such growth and strength that comes from Kandis’s experience. Heavily focusing on the community she gives back to and provides resources for, forgiveness that arrives at unexpected times, family foundations and the little things that bond a family together, and Kandis’ navigation in returning to a life that was much different than she remembered. In this, “Landscape of Life,'' I wanted to give honor to felt connection within the intertwining and weaving of the many facets of a personal life that serve as a guide through the ever changing landscape of life. Meeting my inspiration has been a wonderful, rich experience, and telling her story through art has added a new layer of perspective and connection in my life.
