Personal Stories

Grief Through Art

Following the death of someone special in their lives, many people find it cathartic to write down their thoughts. 

Not everyone can convey their grief through the written word, and it may be a much easier and more satisfying way to express their feelings through their artwork.  Everyone is different, so this could be drawing, painting, ceramics, photography, textiles, calligraphy, scrapbooking … indeed, any form of artistic expression. For this reason we have created this art gallery.
