A captivating portrait of a singular cosmos bloom in black and white, this fine art floral print tells a story of unconditional love. The kind of connection one cannot see or comprehend enough to explain, yet can be felt in every corner of our souls. In capturing this ethereal beauty I imagined the swift wings of butterflies dancing around her delicate form, unearthing a memory that illuminated my Mother’s warmth. Reminiscing about a brief encounter we once shared with the spiritual creature, I contemplated how a Mother’s affection is with us throughout — a beacon of light even on our darkest days.

Framed with intention of enhancing the elegance of the print, this exclusive piece is encased in museum quality glass, on Canson® Infinity Arches® 88 Paper made in France.

You were my first home. The knowing of you is innate. For my skin is made of your own. My voice an extension of all you are. I see you in all that I love. Even when miles separate us, you are present in the way the sea holds the shore. When wind whips around my body, holding me, guiding me, reminding me that I am in fact extraordinarily alive. I wish my mind could remember the first look into your eyes. But my soul knows. My soul remembers every moment spent with you. You spoke to me of all the things I didn’t know I needed to hear. When my heart shriveled in fear, your hands found me, held me and smiled. You took those fears and turned them into possibility. As the delicate cosmos swayed in the whisper of a breeze, I felt the harmony of your presence. The way you always did, and continue to make our family whole.
A mother is not always found in the ones who birthed us, but for me, she is. A seeker of beauty that will forever leave me speechless. Cosmos are the bringer of butterflies, as I shot this photograph, I thought of the lilacs, the butterfly that landed outside my bedroom window after my grandfather passed. And how they hopped on my mother's pinky without an ounce of fear. A testament to the soul my mother has. One full of boundless love. I will forever see you in the gleaming light that streams through window sills. Pale and bright as star light. Evanescent, eternal. Shimmering hope on all my broken pieces. Unconditional lover, the woman who made me.
