happy mothers day

Becoming a mom changed me in ways I could never have imagined.  Being Ares mom empowered me, opened my eyes to so many things I didn’t understand about my own childhood and my own mother, taught me to not sweat the small stuff (for real), to stand up for myself when I used to let things I shouldn’t go go and that I could accomplish anything.  I don’t have any photographs of me and my mother after I was a baby something I can never get back.  History will not repeat itself with me and my son :)  Here are a few of us from the last few years :) I love him so much and am so thankful for him.  Thank you Ares for the awesome card and the nap today and for being my most amazing bean, I love you!

Happy mothers day to all of you who nurture, take care of and love a little one (or a grown one) or anyone who needs a mom.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.


Sharing my latest work both personal and commercial. Leave a comment or say hello :)
