Artist Statement
I recently became a mother and found my life completely turned on end. Battling postpartum challenges and severe sleep deprivation, I turned to art to heal me. Just beyond the surface of my struggles I found moments of beauty, peace, and even bliss in my relationship with my daughter. As I was mentally and physically pushed to my limits, I found previously undiscovered strength. More than ever before, I began to wonder about a female deity. My art helps me contemplate the sacred, if brief, moments of motherhood and find connection with the divine feminine. My art is all about the divinity and power of motherhood. Be it a depiction of a female God, or the first time I held my daughter in my arms, I see it all as divine. I have a newfound reverence for not only mothers, but all women. Women are strength.
