Grief Grows Gardens


About this Product

This is a 16x20" original painting (acrylics on canvas). I created this piece over the second anniversary of my mom's death (due to pancreatic cancer), as a way of processing my grief. I was struggling to give myself permission to feel, and I needed the reminder that processing my pain will lead to beauty. I hope "Grief Grows Gardens" brings healing and peace to your heart, or the heart of someone you love who might need it. [Prints available on request.]

Meet the Maker

Hello! My name is Dana. I live in the Denver area with my husband, my two kiddos, one Yoda-eared dog, and one marginally entertaining gecko named Echo.

After an entire life invested in the arts of music and writing, I began playing with paint as a way of healing in the wake of the sudden passing of my mom, and as a source of calm in the midst of parenting my neurodivergent lovelies. I've found I've loved it much more than I ever dreamed I could. It's also served as an unexpected vehicle for connection with my kids, as my daughter has often painted alongside me, and my son brings any number of his own activities to my workspace to parallel my creative process. Art has surprised me in countless ways.

I hope you enjoy exploring my work. I'm still in the process of adding work to my shop, so please do let me know how I can serve you today. I'm so glad you're here.
