My mother, Mira, went missing when I was around 11 years old. Within the past several years I've been able to speculate more on where she's been. Through private investigators and hearsay, I've come up with a list of 6 cities which are her last known locations. Starting in Honolulu (which is where I was born), the paintings move through to Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, South Korea and Hong Kong with Hong Kong being possibly the actual last known location. Each painting has images of my mother with missing persons posters. Sometimes there are images of my father or myself as a baby. I started doing this as a way to process my loss and to find a connection to Mira. Ultimately my goal is to find her, but to also send her a message of love, support and care.
