Artist Statement: A new baby is a wonderful addition that alters the balance of everyone’s lives in his sphere. My life as a new grandmother is changing as my relationship with my own child, now a mother, is transformed. The balance of our family, which revolves around this delightful baby, who is quickly becoming his own person, is achieving a different equilibrium. Mostly though, our home is a happy place, brightened by his wide smile, his contagious giggle and his displays of affection. We balance in life like one standing on a cliff holding a baby above!
