Going forward, I will donate a portion of sales from my heart series to the Canadian Cancer Society as "Hearts for Amber"
Someone I care about Carmen (she is married to my nephew), has lost someone they care very deeply about ~ a beloved sister, Amber. to angiosarcoma cancer of the heart. An extremely rare cancer. Before Amber passed, Carmen had asked me to create a heart for her - which I did (of course) and it is the one title ~ "i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)" A week later . . . Amber left this world.
"On Sunday evening, March 24, 2019, Amber Nicole Oke-Hoffman passed from this life to her heavenly home at the age of 38.
Amber was born in Kamloops, BC Canada on July 17, 1980 to Sharon and Gordon Oke. She received her degree in Physio Therapy from UBC in 2004. That same year she married Chris Hoffman and together they have two children, Liam (10) and Ayla (7).
Amber fought her battle with angiosarcoma cancer with great courage and strength. Amber always held faith that God was holding her in the palm of His hand and that His will was being accomplished in her life. Remember Amber for her joy, her love for her husband and children and her unshakeable faith in God.
Thick impasto, crystals, stones, gold foil are just some of the embellishments in the "Heart" paintings.
