Making Time for Art

Ruby and I, March 2014

As a new mom, I have struggled with balancing the demands of motherhood, work, and art-making.  How do you find time for each role? I find I have to be very disciplined and think of art-making as one of my jobs.  Just as I have to be at work at specific times and have a routine for my daughter's bedtime, I have to carve out specific times to work on photography.  But I have to admit, making art these days sometimes takes a backseat to making a living and making sure my daughter's needs are met.  How do you find time to create?
