"Strength To Grow" was inspired by the new trust I've found in my body this year. After struggling with infertility and loss for a couple years, I had felt betrayed by my body and what it was "meant" to do. Struggling with a high risk pregnancy only solidified my frustration with this body of mine. Once our baby was born, I really wanted to breastfeed and I knew the only way I could try to make it happen was to build more trust back in my body's abilities and some how it's worked. I'm forever grateful I've reconnected with "her!"
Please note that my artwork uses brush textures and can have a varied texture throughout and are an intentional part of my style.
