Artist Statement:
The women and one man in the little portraits are some of my beloved aunts and one uncle from Wisconsin, and 3 of my great-aunts who grew up on the prairie in South Dakota and who's mother was a midwife who rode her horse out in snow storms to deliver babies! They came from strong stock and all lived in to their 90s and even 100s. Each piece is a record of their unique existence which made a huge difference in my life. I thought they each deserved a portrait.
