"Being an artist keeps me in constant conversation with the world around me. A ceaseless observer. I now go out of my way to share the things I notice, colors, shapes, patterns, light, with my children as I encourage them to slow down and pay attention to their surrounding environment as well.
This ceaseless observation extends to my internal world as well and as a mother I am often questioning how I can become a better person in all realms in order to serve my children and ultimately myself.
As my daughter has gotten older she sometimes questions my choices and I constantly try to explain that my hope is that her seeing me pursue my passions regardless of societal expectations will allow her to do the same as she finds herself in similar situations. I hope that my son is able to find the same lessons as he matures." - Cassia CoggerRead More
