Beauty in grief: Durham woman creates 100 days of art from her mother’s funeral flowers (WRAL)

WRAL: Beauty in grief: Durham woman creates 100 days of art from her mother’s funeral flowers. “When Janet Willis’ mom passed away from small cell lung cancer in her 70s, Willis said she felt like she lost more than a mother; she lost a piece of herself. The loss launched her on a 100 day journey, creating art with the dried flower petals saved from her mother’s funeral and sharing her grief experience with her followers.” If the grief wasn’t so overt, you could call her illustrations whimsical. Instead they’re almost unbearably tender. Reminds me a little of Leo Lionni. She’s created an Instagram to share her work.
