Regram ;Motherhood, 2016
18x24 pencil, ink.
Mothers are the embodiment of creation. Watching Martha's transformation into motherhood has been a beautiful and humbling experience to witness. The devotion, patience, and work it takes to be a mother is beyond measure. Martha is evolving the individual she was in service to the life of our daughter Nova. It's natural for a new mother to feel a loss of self during this process while taking on this new identity. I made this portrait of Martha to honor the new role of Mother that she has embraced, and to celebrate the new life inside her that she is nurturing into existence. I love you Martha and I am so grateful to have you in my life.
