An Artist Residency in Motherhood

Michelle Grant - ARIM

So I’ve signed up for this – a self-directed residency specifically designed for those combatting lack of sleep, creativity, space, funds, time etc since having children (oh my), and to work within these confines rather than despite them….  As they get a little older and start at nursery/primary school I’ve begun to feel a bit more like I can breathe mentally again.  The aim for me is to produce a body of work, without particular agenda at this stage, and edit at the end of the residency.  I’ll be periodically posting work in progress on my instagram and eventually also contributing to the facebook group.  The program was created by the wonderful interdisciplinary artist Lenka Clayton, someone I’ve admired hugely for quite some time.
