What an amazing few weeks I have had. The 10th Annual: Contemporary Women 2016 Exhibition is about to wrap up. The 4ft x 8 ft painting I am working on is slowly getting closer to completion. My thoughts and ideas book also known as my sketchbook is being filled with compositions that push my boundaries as an artist. However, the most profound experience of the last few weeks was the birth of my daughter. There was some fear that I would lose myself as a person as well as my motivation as an artist with the birth of my second child but in fact it has been quite the opposite experience. I feel even more creatively inspired and it is as though I am having a reawakening. I am curious to see how this all translates over the coming months in my studio.
