Maintaining an art practice is always a battle between space, money, and time. As an artist and a mother, I needed to organize these three elements, while I developed my character to be a more emotionally sound and compassionate person. Where the obstacles of motherhood to making art may be obvious, what was not initially apparent to me was how my work would develop as part of the process of parenting. Being a mother has given me the skills to be a better artist.
