In Her Footsteps...

Mother's Journey 2015

Often carbon footprints are discussed as the cause of harm on mother earth, I propose mothers as the un-carbon foot-printers. This shoe belonged to my own mother. It illustrates her heroic movement through time. She rescues and rescued so many humans during wars, famine, floods, fires and cultural pressures.

Sister, I Am Here 2015

Laces unravelled portray intergenerational trauma on my sister's shoe. This desert rose with the purest heart is bound by pain and unforgiving regret. She sacrificed everything even her soul to protect her babies. Fear overtook her but she still stands and perseveres taking baby steps to climb out of darkness. Hope is not lost, she regenerates herself.

Self healing and connecting with the source. Renewed steps enduring towards the heights of an ever changing life journey, endure much longer... This is my shoe.
