ON ART + MOTHERHOOD
My daughter is in the studio
Playing with tools and wearing a beret.
She might even sporting some high heels. She's 9 years old.
Motherhood was the creative instigating moment for me.
It made me dig my heels down
It made me want to show my children that they too could lead a creative life.
I often have to remind myself of that
Mostly when they spill an ink bottle or three.
Motherhood wasn't in my 'plan'.
But neither was being an artist.
And today, I am both.
