About the artwork:
"Endure" is a homage to my children who inspire, astound and strengthen me to direct my sail towards living with integrity. "What wouldn't you do for them?" was the first title for this piece, with the idea of the ocean as a mother's quilted blanket to protect them. But, I wanted to focus on the three of us united by the upheaval of having to leave out home and yet through it all, we've never looked back, they are going from strength to strength, I am awe and we will endure.
