Hide and Seek

You fill my life, my emotions,
Sometimes, I am wishing you grow up faster because of your troublesome.
The only things can keep forever are the memories when I look back.
The art piece is inspired by the interaction between me and my son, weaving in the intimacy and fresh of being a mom for the first time. Holding his little hands helps me to seek my new role of motherhood. The awakening of femininity and motherhood has been overwhelming, and I was switching between the roles of being a mom and myself, the weaving helps me to seek a peace of mind, enjoying the joy and creativity of motherhood, as an integral part of my life.
