ARTIST IN RESIDENCY IN MOTHERHOOD (ARIM)
New work and writing coming soon.... or not because as a mom I have NO time. But I recently decided sign up for an Artist in Residency in Motherhood, started by Lanka Clayton. This is a self-directed residency I am undergoing within my own home as a means of reclaiming my studio practice, my happiness, and an integral part of myself.
I will undergo this self-imposed artist residency in order to fully experience and explore the fragmented focus, nap-length studio time, limited movement and resources and general upheaval that parenthood brings and allow it to shape the direction of my work, rather than try to work “despite” it.

Since starting my residency in mid-December 2020, I completed the image below and three images in the series, My Heart Fills with Lakes.
