    As a full time artist loss of child showed in all my work until I started playing with dollhoses and


    I have finally learnt to relax I love to do miniature doll housing. I lost my child just over 2 years ago. The darkness of her sudden death drew me into the hole in my heart and showed in my work,in my art ,my life and my health.

    Then a good friend built me a dollhouse. Me 60 years old   I designed walls and did room by room the finishing touches. I relax when I work on it and to my relief my art expanded like never before.

    To those who have lost a child I feel your pain. Give it time yet be careful to laugh even forcing it at first. The family watches us moms and they give themselves the ability to stand by watching us finding a way back to life without your child.   I still pray for the mothers of Newton. Your life you loved was stripped from you. Like myself many of you have let it affect every part of your life. Find something structured like I did my doll housing to relax and enjoy the world without your child. Over time the forced laugh will turn into a real one at just the tight time.

    I am now in the process with a friend's help  to do a miniature hobby farm with a farmhouse , a workshop, a barn and a duck and a cow and a goat and a goose.  That was her dream. Oh yes and a room with two cribs for the twins she dreamed of having and would never take place as her life was cut short
