Made this installation for “Illuminated Orphans” show last night in Seattle, it was inspired by my mom who has passed 19 years ago.
She asked me once to make her a dress for my dad’s company picnic, I made her a long colorful dress from African fabrics.
My dad was embarrassed but she loved it and wore it to the event, there all the African ladies grouped around her and asked who made it.
She seemed to be happy to say it was her son.
52 years, I miss her so very much, I try to keep her close to me with the good memories we had together.
