Today I turn 33 years old.

My mother gave birth to me when she was 33 and will most likely pass away when I am 33.

She has terminal cancer and it is getting worse and worse fast.

I have not been doing well myself lately and haven’t been able to make any balloons as a result.

I will hopefully be able to resume making balloon art around the house soon but I am in no condition to be able to do things quickly and do anything too strenuous.

Not sure what the future will bring but I have peace of mind and I feel my greatest work is yet to come.

I have been going through a lot of medical tests and will soon be seeing a specialist but that will take a while. In the meantime, I have personal artistic plans and projects that I intend to pursue at my own pace, I will be slower but not down for the count.

Also my 3 year balloon sculpting anniversary is later this month so I am very excited about that. I made my very first balloon Sept. 27nth 2012. It was the classic dog.

My absolute favorite and most important piece I have made thus far is what I dedicated to my mother, The Tree Lady and Girl in Mourning.

I don’t want to make balloons, I want to make art, my medium just happens to be balloons. 🙂
