#marchmeetthemaker Day 17|customers & feedback. Thank you to every single person who had taken time to give me encouraging words or bought my work. It really does make me do a happy dance. I really enjoy doing markets as I get to chat away with lots of interesting people but for convenience then my etsy is getting up and running + you can now request a commission! Link in my bio 😊💕🍀🍁

👋 Since the Mother Maker community has grown quite a bit since I started this crazy project, I thought I’d take a moment for a little intro. So, here we go!
My name is Emma Koi. I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with my husband @jasonkoi, a web developer, and our 2 yo son Henry. I’m a classical flutist and private teacher by trade, and I also have a background movement practice, especially modern dance and yoga. 🙏🏻 My passion for collaboration in my artistic practice led to starting @cadancecollective , an ensemble of three women making collaborative work for the stage, using dance, voice, live music, recorded sound, film, and whatever else we can come up with! 💃🏻 When my son was born, I struggled a ton with my identity. I was terrified of losing myself in the midst of giving my energy to keeping him alive. The experience made me want to meet and talk with as many women as I could who make MAKING a priority while raising children. I seek out women who I know can teach me something, and it’s my new life’s work to share these powerful stories with all of you! .
My son Henry is a piece of my heart. He is made of magic ✨

It’s so hard to explain motherhood in all of its forms. It’s hard to explain the pure happiness it brings me. It’s hard to explain the shift in priorities - that really, this family we have built means more to me than anything. ❤️ Yet, I cannot fully appreciate what my family means to me unless I know and honor myself as an individual. For example, I know that if I don’t move my body, sweat, twist, extend myself every day, I cannot show up 100% for my son. 🤸🏻‍♀️If I don’t feel prepared for rehearsals and maintain a professional level of playing on my instrument, I cannot show up 100% for my son.🎶
I’m not sure yet where Mother Maker will go in the coming months & years. My hope is just that these stories are helping some other mamas feel some inspiration, relief and confidence. I have learned so much from the nearly-30 women that I’ve interviewed so far, and if I could sum it all up, I would say this: your path is your path. You may take time off from your work. You may not even find your “work” until after your children are grown...

Working on this guy today. Imaginary Friends. Made from discarded domestic textiles. About being a mother and feeling a little lonely but never being alone. More embellishments to come. #lifeofasculptress #artistresidencyinmotherhood #mothermaker #artistmother #motherartist #imaginaryfriends #softsculpture #artistsoninstagram

Final full day here in Greenport. What a wonderful week it has been. Michael joined me yesterday afternoon and we can’t wait to perform tonight. Thank you @joespub and @soundviewgreenport for this wonderful time.

When a new friend talks about the amazing piece they just bought, and you realize the piece belongs to a friend. #artcommunity #artist #artistsoninstagram #artistmother #artgallery #makenewfriends #makenewfriendsbutkeeptheold

Working on an 80's Kid piece! I had latex balloons attached to this Popple, but turns out latex balloons get weird when you stuff them with fibers. I had to readdress this guy.Thanks so much to @kaylabauerphoto for this sweet Popple! I've got an hour before school pick up! Listening to #thefringeofit podcast! Here we go! 😍⭐️😘 #artistresidencyinmotherhood #lifeofasculptress #mothermaker #artistmother #motherartist #80skid #popple #imaginaryfriend

"body is collectively exhaling" wow!

And the last point, perfect.

Here's #MomLists San Francisco 39 - "My Postpartum Body II". This is the second in this short series, so if you missed the first go back and read it! My husband read this one and was like, "That's it? That's how you're gonna end it?" Yup. I don't have all the answers. I'm deeply flawed. We all are in one way or another, right? And yet, our job as parents is to raise good, loving kids in spite of ourselves and our hang-ups. Also, my daughter got hold of this one, thus the smudges and wrinkles. I thought about rewriting it but then I shrugged, #momlife right?

Here's #MomLists San Francisco 47! "Breastfeeding: Amicable Separation or Heartbreak." Hugs to all the mamas trying to feed those babies in whatever way works. Even those big kids who refuse all the foods and only want pancakes all day erryday. No, I don't know anyone like that. 🙄 Also, I stamped this list upside down. That's two lists in a row I've done something upside down. Interpretations?

It's Spring Break Friday, people! 🙌🏻 Honestly, it's not been a very creative week for me- too much on my mind! How do you clear the clutter in your head? Tell me! Anyway, TGIF and YAY for spring! #thingsinmyhead land on my #studiofloor #mentalchatter

This one's a keeper...I set it up to photograph to sell but it just looks too at home in our living room...whoops! Talk about Friday faffing. I do have a couple of other framed originals that need loving homes though - images to follow later today. #affordableart #originalart #contemporaryflorals #contemporarybotanicalart #northdevon

I'm really struggling with this one in the studio at the moment. I'm not managing to translate my ideas and colour palette together. So I keep coming back to it on my phone when I have a minute as I really want this piece to shine. These are only rough ideas and the painting is so much bigger In real life. 0I know I'll get more detail in but I just can't get it to look right in the studio even though I like how it looks on my phone, and that bothers me so much. It's irritating when you desperately need time in the studio but you're unable to get there.
I guess by using this #sketchapp I'm able to use my time more efficiently in the studio but it doesn't help my frustration sometimes. Sometimes it makes it worse. #ugh

Took an impromptu staycation with my little girl and the guy I married, in the midst of too much work, too many deadlines, and checklists to tick. It feels good to pause. Feels good to hold my girl in my arms and listen to her funny stories 💕

Prickly Pear on Pink is complete! I really enjoyed experimenting with a colored background and I am happy with how this turned out! I went a little big for the first time and I may need to test out smaller paintings to get the goauche just right. Excited to start my next one! ✨🌵❤️
