Oh, the Things We Believe

Artist's statement

This series of poems were inspired by the loss of a friend’s mother and the subsequent journey of growth and acceptance in its wake. Loss is something we so often think we can understand, but it hits each one of us in such unique and staggering ways that it consistently leaves us, ironically, at a loss for an explanation. The hands accompanying each poem represent youth, support, growth, maturity and renewal, respectively.
