Meet the AMU Artists

Marissa Huber

Marissa Huber is an artist, mother, and creative instigator for the Carve Out Time for Art community.

"You don't have to be perfect. You just need to be who you are supposed to be, and love your kids. That is good enough. You are good enough. You are is good enough, and it will improve as you keep going, just keep moving forward. Everything counts."

Katerina Novotna

Katerina Novotna is a mother, dancer, dance teacher, and choreographer with over 20 years of experience.

"I would say to art mums and all mothers of the world - don't be so strict on yourself. Don't forget that you have needs, like everyone else. Don't put yourself last and always value your self-worth. You are beautiful and inspirational."

Shelby McFadden

Shelby McFadden is a stay-at-home mother to her son during the day, and by night an entrepreneur, illustrator, artist and graphic designer.

"Being a mother is hard sometimes. Don't beat yourself up if you can't get everything done in a day. Learn to take breaks and rest. Self-care is super important. You'll find that when you take those breaks, you're more energized, inspired, and motivated. Be kind to yourself."
