Item Description

My mother passed away two years ago and before then I saw the world through rose-colored glasses, and for the first little while after she passed I was quite angry and cynical. I used music to aid me in my healing process and it opened me back up to be a more positive, happy soul. This painting represents that to me. The process of music blooming open my true self again after such a terrible time in my life.

Sizing: Mens 6 / Womens 8

Item Special Note

I am a 29 year old, self taught artist from Kelowna, BC. I use mostly acrylics, and love bright vibrant in your face colours. I started painting as a way to get away when I was stressed, and fell in love with it. I am a full time support worker, who works with adults with autism, I also teach paint nights in my spare time. Im so beyond excited for the opportunity to help the shoe bank of Canada and cant wait to see all the beautiful designs the other artists come up with.
