Thrilled my image "Laundry Specialist" is featured in London @lewisham_shopping_centre as part of the Procreate Project Archive.

Procreate Project Archive is a digital archive and a collection of printable posters of works made by contemporary artists who are mothers/parents. In response to the ongoing crisis, the isolation and invisibility of unpaid care work, this space is thought for mothers and primary caregivers to reoccupy public spaces.The project aims to promote social change and innovation by bringing women’s voices into public spaces creating connections between practitioners, institutions and the public.

"Laundry Specialist" 2021

It's funny how you can be moving on in your work and not even realize it. The look of my images has changed and I've begun documenting the more challenging aspects of motherhood. I'm working on a project statement and capturing more images for the series. Here are a few of the images.

Runaway, 2022

Suffers of Ambivalence, 2022

Arms Numb, 2023

Lonely Yet Never Alone, 2022

I decided to exhibit the image Mom's Never Alone at the 3rd Annual Community Members Invitational at RI Center For Photographic Arts in Providence, RI. I was excited to see the image printed and framed and enjoyed visiting with other artists and seeing new work. My longtime friend Krysten Gibb also exhibited an image in this show. Please go see the show if you can, it is up until February 10, 2023.

To close out 2022, I am excited to share that my image "Manages Time Efficiently" from my series Resume Of A Stay At Home Mom was selected by Juror Kristen Street to be exhibited at RI Center For Photographic Arts.

The show opens December 15th, 2022 5-8pm.

"C. Usmar’s image was poignant, evoking empathy and anticipation depending on the viewers place in their lifecycle." -Kristen Street
