I never gave too much thought to the idea of having kids. I felt I had enough going-on in my life to take care of another human being. That changed when I met the wonderful human I am with now. We both went through some experiences that made us realize we wanted to be parents. Then the struggle began. Pregnancies that went nowhere, endless nights thinking what I am doing wrong, endless days trying to figure out what we can do differently.
This exhibition is about the journey of bringing a human being to life. This looks different for every person on earth, but I know there are many people out there that have gone through what we went through, and even more. Trying to stay positive is hard sometimes, but art helps me process what goes on in my life and around me, it helps me overcome obstacles and keep looking forward to good things that will come. Enjoy the ride.
