This is a giclée print of my painting titled, "The Memory of Isabella." This is from "The Copper Ghosts Collection" that honors Michigan copper miners. Long before the gold rush there was the Michigan copper rush. With the depiction of mountain landscapes, portraits of miners, and scenes from their lives, I’ve tried to tell the story of what it meant to be a miner in Michigan, the more intimate struggle that may be hard to get from a history book.
This painting is based on an actual grave stone in the Cliff Mine Cemetery in Clifton, Michigan. The Cemetery is now overgrown and reclaimed by the forest but the memories of the miners and their families remain. The inscriptions on the grave stones are mostly the names of woman and children.
Art can be very powerful. With my work, I try to paint the beauty in humanity. I am dedicated to creating art for the sake of the people, art that tells a story and honors the good things in humanity.
The print is 20 inches wide by 30 inches tall, printed on paper, and hand signed by the artist.
