I have initiated a collection of new works enabled by the constraints and commitment of motherhood. More specifically, I am exploring the practice of homeschooling as a lens for this work. To more authentically experience and create these works I have undertaken a six month study into my own own “homeschooling” with my seven-year-old son. Using our domestic quarters as a backdrop, and my son as a instigator and collaborator, I’ve created an ongoing body of work that examines family constructs, the maternal-child relationship, and the ways that an artist can consider parenthood as a locus for creativity rather than a distraction or an obstacle in the career path.
