Each purchase from "Bloom Into Hope" is accompanied with a printed explanation of the collection as follows:
"This collection is rooted in navigating the healing process. Here’s what I know for sure: Tears are honorable work. After a good moment, or days, of release comes HOPE.
The painting process: Each original painting in this collection began as many paint drips down the canvas, initially resembling tears. The drippy bottom edge is intentionally left as is, to honor the importance of this process.
If you are struggling now, take it one day at a time. Continue to seek hope, it will find you. Know how worthy you are, exactly as you are. My wish is that one day this collection will become a beaming reminder of what you were able to get through. If that day is today, how grateful are we for this ordinary day?"
Be sure to check out the new "Comfort Box" + "Comfort Shawl" that can be shipped directly to a friend!
**A portion of all proceeds from the 'Bloom Into Hope' Collection will go toward donating a Comfort Box to a family or an individual who is in need of hope.

What is gallery wrapped canvas?
This is the canvas I typically work on. It is a nice clean look when hanging on the wall. It does not require a frame. The canvas itself is 1.5 inches thick, and I continue the painting onto these edges. You can still have a gallery wrapped canvas framed by your local framer.
What is a Press Print?
This is a more economical print that is only available up to 11x14. It is printed locally in Albany, NY with high quality inks on acid free paper, made to hold up to UV rays for 30 years or more.
What is a Giclee Print? (Gee-clay)
This is a true art collector print. It is printed locally in Albany, NY using archival inks and acid free Somerset velvet paper. This print is made to keep it's colors true and vibrant for over 100 years.
