The Balancing Act


As I struggle to find balance between working and motherhood, and after a prolonged absence of just focusing on the latter, drawing has become both a rare pleasure and an absolute necessity, so as not to lose my own individual identity.

These simple, preliminary ink sketches, which would have taken only minutes to execute B.M. (before motherhood), ended up taking an excruciating amount of time. They are the basis for a future series of more elaborate illustrations I hope to publish soon.
