I will always be grateful to Mothers Who Make, who reminded me I could still be an artist even if I wasn’t making the same things I used to make, and empowered me to create a new kind of project, that could document this shifting identify between mother and maker and maker and mother.

Delea Shand is always making something -- whether it's music, children, comedy, costumes, breakfast, messes, mistakes, or shows, she's always got something up her sleeve. (Or on it.)  She trained as a classical singer and actor, but learned all this mothering stuff on the fly, with support from the brilliant and inspiring women in her life, and, of course, with the help of her parenting partner and husband, Gus.
