44.4 Mothers/Artists Collective, Sad Trombones, Arts Administration. It’s all here, baby.
Hey! I used to make art, like a lot. Then, I got a job that made that really hard to do. The job is art-related, but I don’t make art for that job (unless you believe arts administration is an art, and well, it kind of is, isn’t it?)
And then, I went ahead and had a baby. I suppose another work of art?
And now, well, I’m figuring out how to do all those things at the same time. It’s slow-moving, but I’m getting there, with some help and good old community along the way. Most recently, I’ve joined a Mothers/Artist Collective called 44.4 and we survived the pandemic by talking about art, making cool lawn/political signs (see above), and preparing for a show, that got funding from the City of Ottawa. Woot woot!
