Millie's Angel, Megan

Millie's Angel.


about the piece.
A friend and I went to our local cemetery for International Babylost Mother's Day. I found this angel atop a grave. I called it Millie's Angel. Millie was the lady buried there.

about the artist.
Megan describes herself, "I am the wife to Ken and mother of five: 17 year old Troy and four who are only with us in Spirit - Brendan (Still born 19/4/1999 - 20 weeks gestation); Cianan (stayed with us for us for 7 hours - 6/8/2000 - 22 weeks); Kavyn (Still born 31/1/2002 - 23 weeks); and Alex (Still born 17/2/2005 - 21 weeks and 5 days). Writing and art have helped me to traverse the journey that is grief.

Megan blogs at Four Ravens. Her former blog, the Rose Garden, has more of her poetry and writing.
