Viewing single post of blog Portrait of a Parent

I had anticipated writing again before now. Such is the nature of working around life and children.

I attended the interview at Derby University. I have been accepted on to the MA in Fine Art and I start next month.

Childcare is pretty much sorted and at present, I am not too anxious at the thought of leaving my baby!

I am continuing to meet with my Creative Mentor, which I find hugely beneficial, especially when I sometimes have conflicting thoughts regarding direction as an artist, juxtaposed with parenthood and the necessity of earning some kind of living wage.

Thankfully, I have an enjoyable part time job, to which I have recently returned.

Maternity leave really is fading quite quickly into the distance and a new kind of real life will evolve.

I’m anticipating a lot of thoughts and emotions being spewed into sketchbooks and onto canvas in abundance over the next few months.

I am really pleased to have been granted this opportunity to develop and progress in my career as an artist.
