HER-story:

With words and images, I am telling my story. Through art, through sculpture, I am remembering HERstory...

remembering Mimi


she taught me to stand tall and respect myself...

she taught me to trust my gut...

she taught me to clean, cook, sew and iron, but not because of my gender (she taught her sons and grandsons similar chores)...

she taught me to be loyal and truthful, especially with myself...

she taught me that motherhood is a privilege, a lifelong commitment and a selfless sacrifice...

she taught me how to hula dance, gracefully moving to the rhythms of nature while telling my story...

she taught me to always help another in need, especially another woman...

excerpts from my journals

Happy Birthday Beloved Mimi...truly a Grand Mother...
