Letters to Andrew
On February 7, 2016, my youngest brother, Andrew, died suddenly of a heart attack while mountain biking near his home. This shock to me and my family is something that will stay with us forever. As I started trying to manage the inconsolable grief that ensued, I found myself drawing letters to Andrew to help me express my feelings. These drawings are heartfelt letters of grief, sorrow, loss and ultimately of redemption. They are each individual, as feelings tend to be, but draw the same set of underlying complex relationships with them. Andy will remain a part of my life, and of my art, forever. These works are a way of ensuring that.
