About - Fine Art Print My Sister, My Friend

This print is a professional reproduction of the original painting My Sister, My Friend.

There is a lot of love and meaning behind this artwork, and it's actually hard to put it into words! But if you have a sister who is your soulmate, separated by distance but always in your heart, you will know what I mean. In Latin, Soror Mea, Amica Mea translates to My Sister, My Friend. These words are inscribed on my soul sister and myself. The motif I have painted is loosely based on the city skylines of each of our respective homes; Perth for me, and Saigon for her. The wave connecting the shapes represents the sea that separates us. Distance between loved ones is felt strongly during the pandemic, and that is what brought this piece to life - a little memento to remind us that no matter how far apart we are, we will always be together.

I have made the artwork a 'mirror' image, so that it may be displayed either way.
