After losing her son Daniel to cancer in 2013, talented artist Eve Wilder channelled her grief by producing a series of very emotive oil paintings, entitled ‘Beyond Illusion’ in his memory, which were displayed at the Peggy Jay Gallery in Hampsted back in March.

 

Daniel was cared for by North London Hospice.

Eve said:” Daniel was first referred to North London Hospice in June 2013 when his pain became unbearable and I will never forget the day when we first walked in. We all immediately realised that we had come to a very special place and I felt Dan physically relax and breathe a sigh of relief. Over the next few months, it was to become a sanctuary, not only for Daniel but for us all as a family.”

 

Daniel was a very talented artist himself and produced some very beautiful pieces of artwork. One of which he gave to the nurses at North London Hospice which they have put up in their nurses station.

 

Eve has a BA in Art and Design and a Masters Degree from the Royal College of Art but she had not painted for some years. After she lost Daniel, she decided to turn his room into a studio and surrounded by his personal objects and photographs, she produced a large body of work. This is testament to the healing power of beauty and creativity and through this process Eve will continue to find solace.

 

Eve kindly donated £500 from the proceeds of the sale of her artwork to the Hospice, in memory of her son.
