A visual and audio experience
The Babymama Effect
The butterfly effect is a theory studied for decades by many historians and mathematicians. This
theory refers to how insignificant actions can lead to greatly different results. In this collection of
paintings, I explore this concept of the butterfly effect and take the viewer on a journey with me
as I discover how one seemingly small event changed my life forever.
Through this visual and audio autobiographical experience , you’ll see my journey over the last
2 years through pregnancy, infidelity in my relationship, a devastating break up, single
motherhood, co-parenting and learning to love again. This series highlights the importance of
weathering through the tough times, healing and transcending into a better version of self
through the times that could have defeated me.
Many women have found themselves in relationships that do not serve their highest good. Many
have been mistreated within their relationship and without knowing they deserve better. Many
have become single mothers or “Baby Mamas” who never thought they would. It is important for
me to share my experience of how I navigated through these critical moments of my life and
how beautiful life became once I decided I required more for myself. My hope is that by
illustrating my story it will encourage others to embrace what’s on the other side. When you
choose yourself and accept the seemingly bad moments, they can and will become a blessing.
