For years and years my artwork and my life were wrapped up in motherhood. My husband and I have four children, and this piece was made the year the third one was born. The fourth side has no border, just a binding. I see it as a premonition of the fourth baby, yet to come. That the mother is nursing her babe and drawing at the same time is how I was. How I still am. An artist and as good a mother as I can be - at the same time.
