The relationships we have with our parents aren’t always what we want them to be.
Ukrainian artist Snezhana Soosh wished she had had a very different relationship with her own father than the one she got. So, she’s using her talents to illustrate an affectionate, benevolent connection between a father and daughter she made up.
“I always wanted to have a tender and loving relationship with my own father, but he didn’t know how to show his love so most of the time was distant and cold,” Soosh told The Huffington Post. “I was observing other fathers with their daughters and so loved each tender moment they had together. I think I drew what I lacked and very much wanted — to feel loved and protected by my big papa.”
She’s channeling some negative feelings she has about her childhood into her art by creating a series of beautiful scenes that depict the bond between a father and his young daughter.
