Artist. Massage Therapist. Mother of 3 “high energy” boys. Angie Smith is busy, yet somehow maintains calm — and balance — through it all.
Angie first identified herself as an artist when she was 10 years old. She launched her career before having her first child; however, once she had her first son (now 10 years old) her art career “went on pause.”
We discussed the balance between art and motherhood; between chaos and art.
Notable Quotes by Angie:
“I was fully-emerged in being a mother. I did not really create in the time he was born until he was 18 months.”
“I was so wrapped up in being the best mother I could be to him, that I put everything for me on hold for a bit … including art.”
“I felt it all come back to me. It made me happy. It made me calm. When he woke up, I felt like I was a better mother.”
“Easier to balance now that I have 3 children. They are their own little tribe now.”
“100%. Having children has made me a better artist.”
