Last November, after a long journey, I finally became a mum to baby Alice (hence the lack of posts!). I went through a physical process and then became full time carer to a baby, but it took a while for the idea of being her mummy to sink in. I created this image to connect myself with the word Mummy, to allow the emotions to be felt. I used pen and colour pencil to create this image so that I could work on it for a few minutes at a time whilst Alice was sleeping. The patterns used are taken from the red sleepsuit she’s wearing in the photo. At the end I decided to add the photo of both of us to show us connected as mother and daughter.
