Purpose

The purpose of hospice portraiture is to capture the unwavering expression of love that endures between people while living with terminal illness.  Hand portraiture preserves this important expression of love. Each hand is different; a symbol of identity that embodies character and tells stories. Hands reveal honest emotion. Hands are for holding.

Family, documentary and hand portraits are free of charge to hospice patients and families under any hospice care anywhere in Jackson or Josephine Counties. Mary comes to the home or location of choice. This service includes a framed print and a CD with images for sharing with family and friends.
