CIRCA:

This is going to be a difficult period for artists. What obstacles have you overcome? What advice do you have for younger artists that are looking up to you this month?

EMMA TALBOT:

I brought up two sons as a single parent after my husband died, from when they were 6 and 7. Balancing working to support us financially with being a present, supportive parent and trying to remember what everyone needed day to day, as well as trying to keep going as an artist, was really challenging. Especially when we were all grieving. For me, figuring out how making art could become a refuge and a means to really articulate my thinking was fundamental. However tough life is, art can be a really valuable space for exploring thinking, even with very little means.
