In this video I share a box of drawings and paintings I made while living in Australia in the time after I had a baby. I talk about how making drawings and paintings daily helped me get back on my feet at the start of motherhood. I also talk about continuing to make work with limited time, space, and materials.
I am beginning a year-long goal of making a project a day. It’s been way too long since I made work on a regular basis, and I really miss it. Since the birth of our son 12 weeks ago, it seems that time is moving in fast-forward, and I have this sense of urgency — that I don’t want to lose or waste time anymore.
So starting today, I’ll be making a project per day, something small that can fit in my hand.
Today, I made a little book from one sheet of paper, with no sewing or gluing.
