Donna Gilbert (nee Cobbett) 13.07.69 - 16.08.17 - she was such an important part of my formative years and a dear friend! In this picture I hope to encapsulate the memories of our childhood years when we were together so much and keep them alive now that she has passed on. I have used elements of Frida Kahlo's powerful self portraits to influence the piece. Donna, like Kahlo, lived with HUGE challenges. Living with cancer for so many years Donna's strength was apparent throughout. She lost her fight to cancer but she never lost her fight. The imagery within this portrait tells a story of a friend who was like a sister to me. I can never fully do justice within a piece of art to the memory of Donna but I will enjoy reliving and engaging with the memories held most dear... Rick, Rachel and Joshua - these are my memories of your amazing Wife/ Mother.
God saw you getting tired, When a cure was not to be. So He wrapped his arms around you and whispered, "come to me."
