A Catalog and an Interview


The Lovely Clusters fall catalog came out today, oh my goodness, it is full of loveliness! Such talented artists, such gorgeous details.
I'm so excited that my paintings are featured on both the Multicolored page and on the Purple page.


There is such a soft, feminine aesthetic to the catalog that I love, I'm so honored to be included!

I am also absolutely thrilled to share with you that I am featured over at the lovely Dana Barbieri's blog today as part of her Art Biz Mamas interview series in which she asks creative mamas to share their secrets for making their art, while also being responsible for a home and family.
This interview was so rewarding to do, as her questions led me down a mental path that I'm still working my way through in an introspective way. She really helped me to evaluate where I'm going with this online adventure, how being a mother has changed my work, and especially how far I've come, from being a new mama six years ago trying to make sense of my life with kids!
You can check out the interview here, and I'd love to hear what you think. Maybe we can start a dialogue about how others of you make your work while also managing your little ones and your home? Right now, I'm typing this as I am letting the stove heat up to make dinner....so there you go, it is all about doing things where they fit in for me! Enjoy!

great interview! i can really relate to what you said about balance and honesty. i also think that as an artist who is a mother i learned to integrate art more into every day life and to approach mundane tasks in an artistic way because i don't have all that free time any more. and as a mother who is also an artist i can find ways to parent creatively and artistically. for me it often is more about having an artistic attitude towards life then actually creating a work of art - without that attitude it could get frustrating to do all the daily chores... i also believe that blogs like yours spread so much warmth and inspiration - it's great to see technology used in such a positive way. warm spring greetings from oz, nicole.

Wow, I love the way they used your work. It truly shines.

Now I need to bookmark your interview. I won't be able to read it until late tonight but wanted you to know that this subject is near and dear to my heart and I am so interested to read about your thoughts and love the idea of starting that dialogue on your blog. More on that soon I promise.

Hi Faith!

Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your interview! I too am a Mommy of two small children and struggle with finding balance between my family and my creative life! It is so very encouraging to hear other mom/artists speak of how they fit it all in. Thanks so much for sharing with us!! :)

Take care,
Jennifer

Hi Faith,
That was an inspiring interview! The Creative Family was one of the first books I read about incorporating creativity into family life as well. Balance is so hard to find as a Mama and I appreciated your open and honest approach to the questions. I find the more I work on my projects the more cluttered my house gets too!

Thanks again.
