On being an artist and a mom

I think the best advice i can give an artist parent is to embrace the indeterminate, foster adaptability, and do your best to relinquish control/ relax. I have had two children and they are nothing alike. For me, there is no consistent strategy or equation that helps me succeed at making art or being a mom. Every day is different- such is nature. We live in an age where we rely so heavily on data, standardized tests and continually seek absolute answers. Leave space for the unknown because it will give you space to forgive yourself when you spend too much time out of the studio or too much time away from your kids.
