Work Overview

This piece is a celebration of life!

Whilst searching for ideas for this work, my two delightful new little nieces Lidija and Izabella entered this world… their schedule taking us all by surprise! The work explores the magic, beauty and fragility of new life, and the feeling of love that sweeps over us when we welcome a new soul (or two!) into the world.

This piece is dedicated to Kate, Aldi and Emi - the moment you have been waiting for is here.

— Ella Macens
