I have been working on a new series of bottles. It's about self discovery through the stories of my fore-mothers.
The little girl in the picture is my Great Grandmother Alma. She was a real life prairie girl. Her sister died of appendicitis at the age of 12. A year after this picutre was taken her Father took her Mothers' life and then his own. Her Father made this desperate decision after he was diagnosed with terminal cancer, you see his wife was blind. Without him there was no chance of her surviving a hard life on the prairie with 2 children. After this tragedy my Great Grandmother was sent to care for the children of wealthy relatives.
Can you see this story in her eyes?
The quote on the bottles reads, 'in search of my Mother's garden, I found my own'.
Epilogue: While working as a nanny Alma met and fell in love with the most eligible bachelor in town. They were married, had 3 beautiful girls & lived a long happy life together.
