Have you wondered why dry-cleaning tags often end up in my collages? I’ll tell you. This is a tribute to my late father-in-law, who was one of the most remarkable people I’ve met. He lived with Type 1 diabetes for most of his life and suffered all the major complications from this disease (blindness, neuropathy, kidney failure, amputation). Yet, he was an eternal optimist and fiercely independent! Despite the fact he was legally blind, he ran his own dry-cleaning business in the town I grew up in. He was a beloved part of our community & is dearly missed. Each time I add a tag to my art, I think of him and how lucky I was to know him.
