For this collection, I was inspired by my little cousin Shannon.  Four years ago, she was diagnosed with brain cancer.  Her doctors only gave her a few weeks to live, but she fought bravely for the following seven months.  She was only six years old, and never even had her first day of 1st grade.  She loved fiercely and taught me what courage means.  Shannon also loved butterflys.  This collection I did for her, but I also did it for me.  I never really let myself greive for her death, but through this process I have found a sense of peace.  I will always love and miss her, but I know that it was time for my little butterfly to spread her wings and go home. 

My collection constists of arcylic and watercolor paintings and a few pastel peices.
