About Our Ornament Artist

About Our Ornament Artist

Categories: Blog, fundraisers, grief and loss, Memory Tree

Each year, Midland Care produces a commemorative porcelain ornament featuring original artwork from a local artist to inspire joy, memories and peace during the holiday season. This year’s ornament features a rustic vintage truck carrying a festive pine tree in anticipation of ornaments, hot cocoa, holiday music and gatherings by the fire.

Laura (Wywadis) Pederzani is a self-taught artist from Topeka, Kansas. She loves to explore different media and art forms.

Laura believes art is an expression of emotions created by what is observed, thought, and felt. She believes it is important for everyone to express themselves artistically to fully process and understand the emotions we experience. Laura finds fulfillment in what she creates, whether through music, painting, or a building project, when she feels something is missing from her life. It is Laura’s hope that her art will create connectivity between herself and those observing her work, and healing through expression.

Current year Memory Tree ornaments are available for purchase by donation. Please complete the donation form for pre-order. Prior year ornaments are available upon request while supplies last during any of our Memory Tree services, or by calling Emily Thomas at 785-232-2044.
