An Artist and a Mother Book Cover

An Artist and a Mother Book Cover.

This book comes out in April 2023 and I’m thrilled to have an essay and photos of my art in it! (I can’t believe I forgot to mention it before now…)

Here’s what it says on the publisher’s website:

An Artist and a Mother by Tara Carpenter Estrada, Heidi Moller Somsen, Kaylan Buteyn

An Artist and a Mother is a book of visual artworks and essays that speak to the diverse ways artists balance creative life with the demands of mothering. It includes thirty seven essays describing the work of thirty-nine international artists and an art collective, as well as a resource guide with books, journals, magazines, organizations, and other resources. This book seeks to highlight the growing body of artist mothers who are making visually and conceptually interesting artwork not just despite their status as mothers, but often because of the inspiration and challenges that come with motherhood.”
