Keith Spiro Interviews Robin about the Foremothers Project
Keith Spiro describes himself as a business strategist and community builder. In truth, he is so much more–a wonderful photographer, creative spirit, family man, and dear friend. In this interview, I speak about my inspiration for The Foremothers Project and how I started gathering Foremothers stories from other people in the community. Furthermore, Keith gives me a chance to talk about what motivates me as an artist and what I hope to open up in others through The Foremothers Project.

Many of the stories I have published, like my story about Aunt Fannie and the story from Christine Higgins https://robinbrooksart.com/christines-inspiring-foremother-from-finland/ are about Foremothers who immigrated to this country for a better life.

I love the piece, “We are made from the same cloth”. Just beautiful! I haven’t watched the interview yet, but I will!
Keep making art!
Thank you, Mary! “We are made…” is composed scraps of sari fabrics collaged on top of a rubbing of a collagraph printing plate. The buttons are sewn on.
