They say the camera never lies… personally I’m not sure it ever does anything else. ( : Here’s my self portrait in response to Shelly Hiebert’s mini challenge. Thanks, Shelly!

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
