“Once upon a summer” is an exploration in childhood adventures and the love for outdoor play. It features paintings, all acrylic on canvas. The show is inspired by Mimi watching her children play in nature. These romps helped her evoke her own childhood memories about imaginary play, challenging your fears and the beauty in little discoveries around us. To Mimi, these paintings are stories of adventure and joy painted on canvas.
