Stories My Mother Told Me

Stories My Mother Told Me

18" x 53" ©2005

This leather sculpture was created for the “Inside the Dress” project shown at the McMullen Gallery in Edmonton, Alberta, in 2005. The title, Stories my Mother Told Me, brings me visions of warmth, comfort, protection. This project has given me the opportunity to connect to my past through my Mother’s family stories. I am now telling these same stories to my daughters and granddaughters and through this process am continuing to connect them to their past as well.
