About the piece:
"Angels were very important to my mother, who I lost to cancer in 2013. She even had her own private Christmas tree, separate from the family tree, that was strictly for angels only. As I grew into an adult, she asked me to carry a tiny angel in my bag to protect me as I went off into the night. These wings express the colour that she brought to my world & the true angel that she was (& is) to me."
