Artist's Description

This is a self-portrait that I made years ago when my daughter was small. At that time I was unsure of who I was and what I was capable of. I didn’t recognize myself when I looked in the mirror. When I finished the drawing I put it in my portfolio and stored it under the sofa in my studio. I felt uncomfortable looking at it.

After divorcing my daughter’s father, I pulled the drawing out again and used my hands to erase my reflection. Only a ghost image remained. I knew who I was then- an artist and a mother. My daughter is my biggest obstacle to making my art, yet also my biggest inspiration.

I gave Cordelia a box of pastels and let her make her mark on the drawing. She drew her characteristic circles and squiggles all over my erased face. It is now an accurate likeness…
