The truth is, parenting has forced me to change almost every way I've approached Art-making. It's made me grow, it's made me more raw, more deep and care more about my self-care than I ever have before, because there seems so much less time for it now.
In the five years since becoming a Mama, it's been a long and ongoing journey back home to myself. Every day I experience the pull of both worlds, beckoning me to nurture and nourish my lifelong careers in Art + Motherhood.
So how do you chose between the loves of your life?
Many times I have had to come to terms with the surrender of one whilst doing the other. I have had to scrutinise my values and self-talk on a daily basis. I have had to make ease with not being a superhero. I have had to embrace my humanness in all it's inspiration, sorrow and moments of wisdom ... because that's where all the riches lie.
Because of Motherhood, I'm being forced to become whole, within.
