The Art of Jem Ham

Mother and baby


Pencil on paper

21 x 21 x 0.1 cm
8.3 x 8.3 x 0.04 in



With open arms the mother beckons,
to be held in her embrace.
With a comforting smile and loving eyes,
your little heart a race.

Timidly you take a step,
towards the arms of the maternal figure.
And there you stay until the day,
she swings at you with her stinger.


Exhibited at the Basement Gallery in Subiaco, Western Australia (2018). Held in private collection.
