A remembrance for Wendy's mother Norma.
Representing loving memories for posterity always feels tricky to me. In some ways I feel like an intruder. I listen to snippets of someone's stories, which evoke visions in my head and then I attempt to translate them with my hands. Though my own feelings need to be present, I want the result to feel unique to those who own the memories.
This kind of work is very personal, so I will only describe technique in the detail photos.
