Anne Mavor has compiled in-depth interviews with 21 varied artists who are also mothers. There are writers, scuptors, painters, musicians, video artists, performance artists, and printmakers. They come from different class and ethnic backgrounds and have made different choices in their lives. They discuss how and why they became mothers, how their motherhood affected their artwork and how their artwork affected being mothers. They speak about the hard parts of combining these two demanding jobs as well as the rewards. Each interview is accompanied by an elegant and candid photo of the artist taken by photographer Christine Eagon specifically for the book.
