Contribution to the first 365 travel journal
about the contributor.
Amy lives in North Carolina with her husband and two greyhounds. Amy describes her journey, "Our only child Liam was born alive and apparently healthy on September 25, 2007, and was the joy of our lives. Our son Liam died soon after birth due to unexplained/unknown causes, shattering our world and our hearts. Art is an expression and release of my grief, and a way to honor the memory of our little man who is missed beyond words." Amy maintains a blog showcasing her Creative Everyday Challenge at Surviving the Day Every Day


  1. I love the color contrast. Beautiful piece!

  2. Love the way the tree looks braided. So many things are intertwined in our losses.

  3. I love this one. When I got the travel journal I felt really drawn to this one, the colors the bird, the tree, everything.

  4. Amy, your art is so magnificently powerful. For me, it is a true indication of your feelings towards your darling Liam.
