About Studio Mothers


Me with my five dear ones

Whether you’re a professional painter, an unpublished novelist, a collage artist, photographer, or musician, the work you love isn’t a “hobby.” It’s the way you make sense of the world.

Given the challenges of daily life with children, a home, and perhaps a paying job, managing any kind of consistency in your creative work — or even the occasional creative binge — is often elusive. Creativity gets dropped to the bottom of the list, or lopped off altogether.

Understandably, sometimes it feels like combining motherhood and creative work is an impossible proposition.

Of course it’s not impossible — just difficult, at times. For me and many others, turning dreams into reality is easier with a group of supportive friends watching your back. We benefit from a network of women who share similar challenges and success. Checking in regularly, and seeing the progress that others are making, is inspirational food for the creative soul. To facilitate those truths, I started this blog in January 2008 to support my fellow creatives.

During a collection of major life transitions, I took a two-year hiatus from the blog. In June 2017, I brushed off the dust and restarted this little gem. We still have 16,000+ e-mail subscribers!

I’m a certified creativity coach, writer and editor, and mother of five children ages 27 through 9. (My oldest son, Russell, is a professional musician, as is my next oldest, Matthew.) My short e-book, written specifically for creative mothers with young children, is available here.

In 2017, my life-design workbook, Life By Design: 52 Lists, Questions, and Inspirations for Finding Your Happiness, was published by Castle Point Books, an imprint of St. Martin’s Press. Built on a framework of design thinking, Life By Design is a practical workbook that guides you through applying principles of design to intentional life choices. From career to love to extracurricular pursuits, the exercises in this book help you decide how to innovate and iterate your way to a well-lived life.

This illustrated journal was followed by The Power of Quiet: An Inspirational Journal for Introverts, and Press Pause: A Journal for Self-Care, Intention, and Slowing Down.

All creatives are welcome here. A number of our community members are non-mamas — and even male! Don’t forget to join in the Studio Mothers fun at Facebook.

Warm regards,

Miranda Hersey

PS: In our earlier days, this blog was known as “Creative Construction.” So you may see references to that name in older posts.

  5. I love this and I will be visiting more often! Thank you for blogging. I hope you can take the time and read my blog if possible. I created the blog about a month ago and I relate so much to what you wrote about being a creative mom how our creativity gets put at the bottom of the list! I always try to use what I believe to be my creative talents on a day to day basis.. as a tool to keep myself sane and to show my son that things don’t always have to be so glum and boring!
    Life is beautiful and we must live it to the max!

    Best Regards,

Have started a home business and a blog and really look forward to reading your blog and getting connected to a community such as yours. It’s very important to continue our pursuits as creative people even while we change diapers! Here are my creative outlets in case you are interested.

  9. I have just discovered this blog too, via someone (?) on twitter. Now following too and will hopefully have time to read often. I am always trying to find more time to balance my creativity with mommyhood, work, home duties, etc. Going to go channel some of that spark into Valentines now 🙂

  11. I just came across your site today-at the very time I am having lots of conflict regarding…being a mother plus taking a class, painting, wanting to open an Etsy store…It’s wonderful to be able to get support and inspiration from other working creative moms. Thanks! Soraya

    I’m thrilled to have stumbled on this blog! It looks terrific and right in line with what I’m trying to do as a professional artist and mother of 7. Quite a juggle:) We mama’s need all the support we can get, especially the ever delicate balance of work and play. Looking forward to learning more…

  18. i am pleased to have found this site. i just began painting, and have been trying to find the best brushes for projects. do you have any suggestions?

    June 21, 2012
    • Thanks for stopping by! The right brushes depend so much on the medium you’re using and what you’re trying to accomplish (as well as your budget). I recommend a trip to your local art store to talk to a knowledgeable salesperson about what you’re looking for.

      June 21, 2012
  19. I’m excited I found you guys! I’m a mother of two and just started a home organization business. I’m looking forward to your posts!

      June 24, 2012
  20. Oh, this blog is sooo me. I think I’ve found a home here and am definitely following. How I wish I could be on your list but I’m one of those already squeezing in those niches of time everyday. Also, I have been reclaiming the artist in me seriously for only about three months so I consider myself just a wanna-be right now, still in the crawling stages—pun intended.
    I look forward to the jolts you will inspire.

    June 24, 2012
    • Wonderful, Alexandria — when you have time, do come back and let us know how things are going — in general, and with Aunt Zelda ;-). xo

      June 24, 2012
  21. Hi! We’re not mothers, but we love your blog! We recently started a site with a similar message of freedom and self-expression. It’s great to find like-minded people out there.

  26. Happy to have found your blog. The NaNoWriMo got me in, and I’m here to stay :-). I try to write and some days ‘life’ just gets in the way, but this gives me new inspiration (might mean I’m not reading many other blogs for the rest of the month!). Thanks again, Faye

      • Hi Miranda,
        Well I got to 32000 words, so not quite the 50k but still I was pleased with my first attempt in between looking after the little man and the big man fully into Ironman training! I’m now aiming to get my young adult fiction book finished by my wedding – 30 March as I have 2 nieces from the UK coming over who are avid readers and I thought they’d be good critiques :-).
        I love your blog, it gives me lots to think about (and wishing I had more time!)
        Happy New Year!
        Faye 🙂

        January 2, 2013
      • Bravo, Faye! That is a *huge* accomplishment! Well done, you 😀

    February 5, 2013
  31. I am very happy that I stumbled across this blog. I am a single mother of two and dabble in pretty much any creative persuit I can sink my teeth in. I write, I paint, I do wood and stone carvings, and will be trying my hand at pottery soon. I believe that being creative helps me to keep my sanity.

    February 24, 2013
    • Wonderful, Teresa! How are things going?

      April 2, 2013
  32. what an awesome idea – excited to check out your site more.

    March 9, 2013
  33. This site is perfect for me right now in my life, and my toddler daughter. I am eager to search some more. I love pottery, writing, reading, crafts, photography and basic sewing. I am new to blogging and am enjoying the community and opportunity to express myself. Your site is a motivation and inspiration boost. Love it!

    March 13, 2013
    • Thank you so much, dbubble! Wonderful to have you here.

    I just found this site, too. I’m finally at a place in my life where I feel the courage to truly try to push myself as an artist yet I’m also feeling a ‘baby freakout’! The timing is terrible and seems impossible. I’ll be 38 soon and my boyfriend has no interest in more kids (he has 2 from a previous marriage- they are grown). I thought I was okay with not having kids and have been feeling fired up to make this big life transition (quitting my corporate day job and going for it with making art the focus of my life). I almost wonder if it’s not self-sabotage, yet I’ve been crying my eyes out. I just don’t see how it’s possible. I’m glad to see you have created this blog because women-creatives need this support.

    April 1, 2013
    • What a difficult place, Julie. My heart goes out to you. I’m sure you already know (at least intellectually) that many, many women have fabulously satisfying lives without kids. And when you do have a few of them, it’s hard not to see all of the amazing things that your childless counterparts are doing — enjoying major creative successes, traveling, living with freedom. Maybe it’s just a grass-is-always greener thing that is part of the human condition. If I can be of any help, or even just a sounding board, feel free to e-mail me at miranda (at) mirandahersey (dot) com. xo

        Thanks much, Miranda. Definitely feeling the need for support right now!

  36. I’m a single parent who has been trying to make a little time for creative cooking and photography. It’s not easy but so worth it. Thanks for the setting up this site. I’m at Will be returning.

  40. Thank you so much for this! I stumbled upon it as I’m preparing an exhibition of collaborative work with my five year old. Heck, I figure she would just come into my studio and scribble over everything anyway. Just wanted to say thanks so much for this resource.

  43. Hi, I am so excited to have found your site. It is great to know that there are other mothers who struggle to balance their lives with obligation to their kids and husbands/partners. Trying to find time for themselves is a challenge. I started blogging a year ago and I love it! I aspire to be a writer and need all the help I can get. My goal is to be a great communicator one that positively changes a person’s life. I look forward to following. Have a wonderful day, Allie.

  44. This site is a GEM! So excited I stumbled across it! I am a happy Mom to a handsome 19 month old boy. He surprises and amazes me everyday. Creativity is very important to us, but as a first time Mom it’s hard to know what to do and how to do it. After reading only a couple of your post I can tell this will become one of my favorite blogs fast! Thank You for sharing!

    July 20, 2013

    Very inspiring blog…
    I wrote and illustrated two children’s books which were published in my twenties – then became a single working mom and somehow two decades slipped by. I have decided it is time to get back on the bike. The 20th Anniversary Edition of Long Live Earth is now available for pre-order (10% of proceeds to go to – working hard to solve the climate crisis).

    I hope you might take a peek… feedback most welcomed!

    October 18, 2013
    • Fabulous, Meighan! So glad you’ve decided to start pedaling that bike again — wonderful to have you here.

    I have just found this blog and as a mother of 2 children (one with ADHD and one with Autism) I have ignored my creative voice for many years now in an attempt to put their needs first. I am so happy to have recently re-discovered my creative side but it is a daily battle against everything you speak of in your blog. However, you have lifted my spirit and re-inspired me! I have just begun a new journey as a facepainter and have started a blog of my attempts to move from beginner to professional (but suspect it will develop into so much more as the artist within me fights to be seen and heard). So thank you. What a lovely start to my day to have found this blog and so many other creative Mums.
    I love a quote and find they can be both inspiring and powerful so here is a simple one I tell myself when doubt creeps in and fear holds me back….
    “Leap and the net shall appear…”

    October 24, 2013
    • Yay for you, mazmeekcoms! I love that quote — and I especially love a twist on that quote from poet Maya Stein: “The leap IS the net.” Isn’t that awesome?

      Looking forward to hearing more from you! xo

      October 24, 2013
  50. Having blundered onto this site you are stuck with me. I stopped writing to rear my children and am now back focusing all my spare time to being creative so I understand where so many of you are coming from. Great site.

    October 31, 2013

    It’s always so fantastic when you realize that you’re not alone in the thick of it!!! Before I saw the trailer for Lost in Living I struggled, suppressing my need, my constant sense of urgency to make art, because i knew of no other moms that shared my innate NEED to make art…and so i continued in my silence… “lost in living”….a tired mother. i stumbled on this site just today and love the idea of being part of a circle of moms who know how i FEEL! i look forward to having a virtual back up team when i’m in the midst of a mommy breakdown and haven’t made art in weeks! THANK YOU! 🙂

    November 7, 2013
    • It’s so wonderful to have you here, Christina!! Come back and let us know how things are going….the Monday Post is an especially useful way to stay in touch. xoxo

I am also just at the beginning of a Kickstarter campaign for my first children’s book, and this community might find it of interest! I’ve been working through all the issues related to making time for art and self with a new baby and after three years have completed this project. It contains brightly colored collages and sweet rhymes about adventure and the months of the year.

    Confession: I nearly shed a tear when I found this website. My fiance and I have struck out on the Big Quest to build our own life and family, and since we’re both extremely creative, adventurous people, one of the things that terrifies me is the thought of that ending when we add to our little family. Even NOW it’s difficult to manage sometimes.

    I’m really looking forward to speaking with like-minded folks and throwing those fears to the ground. ❤

    February 28, 2014

    • Well just *looking* at your avatar gave me a little energy boost! 😉 How did your summer go, DoubleEspresso?

      September 22, 2014

    June 15, 2014
  62. I have just found your website and love it, wonderful and so inspiring – I can’t wait to read more. I am new to blogging, having started my blog about making fun crafts with my young son so it is great to be in touch with others – your site will really motivate me. Becky

      September 22, 2014
  63. So excited to find this blog. Thank you. Am trying to add more creativity to my families everyday life. I was an art teacher for many years and since marrying and moving countries and having children it seems, like most I am sure that art took a back seat. . . Even though I love it so much, it makes me immensely happy!! I hope to use this site and other resources to integrate creativity readily into our daily lives.

    August 10, 2014
  64. Have recently started to try and make art and creativity part of our families everyday life. I was an art teacher for many years before getting married, moving countries and starting a family, cooking became my only creative outlet but after a few creative tasks here and there I have begun to remember how important art and creativity is to me and hope to instil that in my own children! Hopefully with a bit of help from this site it can become a reality.
    Thank you Miranda

  65. Studio Mothers is such a beneficial blog. I wish this kind of support had been available when my son was a child.
    Although my son is grown, and I worked outside of the home as a teacher, I always had the yearning to create. I worked in many mediums whenever I could squeeze it in. It is important to find time to create. It feeds the soul. I recently started a blog to share ideas on inspiration and creativity.

    I love this blog. It has really helped push me to make time for my own creativity among all the craziness of mommy-hood and for that reason I’ve nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

  75. Hi, I have also come to this blog for the first time and loved it and has all to do with me: I’m the mother of two lovely girls – aged 3 and 15 – love to write, especially poetry, drawing and sewing. I have recently started a new venture which is to work from home and try to live from my creativity so maybe we can help each other out? 🙂
    I wouldn’t mind to put a link to your website/blog on my website as well; would you like me to?
    I will be following your blog and look for more wonderful and insightful things to read.
    Wish you all the best,

  85. Hi Miranda. Thank you for this wonderful blog! No doubt that you have heard this before (maybe not these words exactly) but you are the first person that I have come across that is rowing in the dream boat which I am still trying to build. I can’t lie but it constantly feels as though the tide is too high but I have always put it down to having to do it on my own and unfortunately I never seem to know where to start which is sort of why I had started my first ever blog a couple of days ago. I had started writing a book a few years ago about how life experiences had morphed me into what I call a Brown Brit but unfortunately my self-belief often makes me stop writing, yet I will happily craft until the cows come home and nothing can obstruct that unless it’s a new idea. I guess I am hoping you may have the guidance which I have been desperately needing.Thanks for reading and much love xx

    Absolutely love this site! I have been wired with tons of artistic outlets I love to enjoy, but just don’t have the time to. From playing the piano, painting, crafts to cooking and I just picked up sewing, I’m glad I found this community of people to help me to act on my inspirations!

  87. Hey there Miranda,

    I’m working on casting a docu-series about families and the next generation of America with Left/Right Inc. and A&E Networks. Would love to represent some beautiful artistic families with the project. If you’re interested in helping us spread the word, (or if anyone here is interested in participating) give me a shout through e-mail at
