MIGRATION PAINTINGS

The concept of migration has been a part of my consciousness since a very young age as both of my parents emigrated from Europe around the time of WWII (my father from Ireland and my mother from Italy). Their stories, along with those of other relatives, and combined with imagery of migratory animals, are the basis for the paintings found here. Perhaps there is a migration story in your family? Most us have one to tell. By uncovering these stories we begin to learn about how we are connected to each other and to all creatures near and far.
