So proud to share the artwork of Laurie McNair Blue. This year she was chosen to illustrate an art card for the Mom2Mom Africa project that I am also so very fond of. Laurie is an accomplished artist, a graduate of Sheridan College’s Illustration program, & an art teacher who is from Ontario Canada and is currently serving as a missionary in Monmouth Wales with her family. ( YES – in the spirit of full disclosure – she’s my Sister.) The cards feature a brightly coloured illustration of two Mother birds and their chicks in a style inspired by Tanzanian artist Edward Tingatinga (1932 -1972). The heart string represents Mothers helping, loving, and supporting Mothers in Africa and Canada. The mother bird is feeding the love to the baby bird.
