Mother

You gave birth to me today at 4am.

Most likely in the dark. Thank you mother,

you amazing woman. Words are not enough.
My dearest mother Arlene Xena

"One day I wish to meet my mother & I will

love and cherish her with all my heart.

She sacrificed so much for the family.

I wish that she is well and happy." as

I wished upon the star , who knew that it

would come true years later.

We were re-united finally. I did not know

what to do, all I knew was that we love her,

we just didn't know exactly how to

communicate that.
Communication is always a work in progress.

Mother you are the most giving woman I have

ever met. The strength you have is

unfathomable. To this day you have shared

yourself to others & always thought of other

people's well being before yours (never

thought that would be possible). You have

forgiven those that have hurt you. Your

youth spent working to take care of other

families and supporting us at the same time

even when you were far away.

All these years you care, everyday.

Your stories amazes me.
This is just a fraction of it. Mother before

she went abroad as an au pair , she taught

in a primary school and during her teaching

careers my sister, brother and I will go and

visit her for milk then after her teaching

during the day she would then spend more

time working on the market selling

vegetables. Her earnings , well , let's just say

just she had to go abroad in able for our family

to survive.

I love you everyday x

 

About Digital Portrait Series

My recent family visit in the Philippines in August

2019 has got me thinking, reflecting and very much

in a limbo of being born from the east and most of

my adulthood in the west.

 

Dedicated these digital drawings to my family as a

form of celebration in unity and love.

    I want something like this. What should I do?
