"Starfish (Pregnancy)" is part of a series I'm working on called Processing Motherhood. Starfish is how I described what it felt like to have a kid in utero, head and limbs push out. While painting little circles to create texture it reminded me of cell division. Painting on a reclaimed framed painting of an ocean scene represents working with what's available; a painted preexisting world, now recycled and reincarnated with new life.
