Amy’s Artwork

During my third pregnancy I decided to use birth art to prepare mentally and emotionally for our new baby girl to arrive.

A friend, art therapist, and fellow doula Alahna Roach once told me that the state of mind you are in when you make art (your right brain) is the same part of your brain that you are in when you labor and give birth.  If anyone has given birth they know that there comes a time when all you can do is look quizzically at someone when they ask you a question because you’re so deep into that part of your mind.

In March of 2010 I set out to create a mandala as often as I could (around every day or so) and it has morphed into a project people are getting excited about!

I also paint belly casts.  Click here if you’d like to see my work.
