Motherhood Artist in Residency Intro

Motherhood Artist in Residency Intro

Artist residencies are not usually intended for artists who have families. Mostly, they are designed as a way to let artists escape from the routines and responsibilities of their every day life. Artist residency in motherhood is different.
-Lenka Clayton

I cultivate presence and awareness daily to soothe the chaos and strain of motherhood.

For the next year, I will be a part of an international collective of mothers and artists in a residency that will occur in relationship to our families, homes and lives. To create art and amplify the beauty of motherhood and artistry together.

This weeks assignment is to take ourselves "out" on our ideal date. Here is mine, in haiku form:

 

Sunshine and the quilts/A little bit of muscle/A lot of spirit

 

Guided by Emma Jaster and Dody Disanto. The other mother residents are: Charline Formenty @charlie_formenty, Heloise Godet @heloisegodet, Julie Bower @julierosebower, Nikki Weaver @nikkiweaver, Nora Achrati @something_brave, Stephanie Hayes @quietly_hayes and Tia Shearer @superfamoustia 

We will be sharing our work on Instagram. 

until next time, xo
