Rivka

  The breast feeding art project continues ~ with Rivka & her daughter. Her design starting point for me was the idea of a tree of life, not with Celtic roots, but with Celtic branches. The trunk emerges from between the breasts and the center of the tree is a Celtic Knot, the rest of design, branching out is ~ Celtic-ISH ~

  I am working on a art progression series, showing this beautiful mama-to-be growing to full term using a caterpillar - butterfly theme. This month, the caterpillar has spun a chrysalis ....

Tangi

I first met Tangi in 2010, when we celebrated her 2nd pregnancy with a beautiful henna design of flowers, butterflies and a moon. 

And then a few months later she returned for postpartum to celebrate the birth of her 2nd son ~

  I met Anna in 2008, during the first few months of my art project honoring motherhood. I'll never forget getting t know this beautiful, young mother-to-be and hearing her touching story. I am so happy for her how her family has grown. Each pregnancy had a different feeling, a different henna design. The latest one was about seeds ~ at her birth blessing party we each got a packet of seeds with this message "Treat your child like a seed that came in a packet without a label. You can't tell what kind of flower you're going to get or in what season it will bloom.

Ah.... the labyrinth.... The path in to the center can be seen as pregnancy, the center is birth, and then the path out is the postpartum period. -

Judith's Sprinkle

Some women have blessing ways, some have baby showers ~ well, this was my first Sprinkle! What fun. It was great to see Judith again, I adorned her belly earlier in her pregnancy, so for this party I just painted her hand & her friends.
