My heart is heavy today. It is with sadness that I tell you that I just lost my grandmother. I found out late yesterday as I was creating this very tile. Even though I knew she was sick and could leave us anytime now, once the news was given, it is still came as a shock.
My grandmother’s name was Tillie, and I have many fond memories growing up with her in my life. As I adjusted to the news, I picked up my pen to continue creating this tile; seeking solace by drawing. The result are those very memories given life with each line that is drawn.
The pain is still very fresh, but I wanted to share what was created as I remembered my grandmother- not how she left this world, but as the healthy vibrant grandparent that helped raise me.
I dedicate this creation to her.
