Since my mother passed away in 1996, I’ve been addicted to genealogy. Like many people, I feel that my loved ones who have died are still with me. But I also feel connected to everyone who came before -- from cavemen to Croatians, native americans to Norwegians; I know them. And I’m not afraid of these spirits, I sense they are wholly benevolent ancestors.
The antique portraits used in my artwork were collected from local historical societies, family stashes and flea markets. In most cases the subjects’ names have been lost, so I have re-named them. Do any of these people belong to you?
