In preparing to become a mother Christina underestimated the identity altering shift that would take place. In order to work through monumental changes in her life Christina sought a creative outlet, resulting in the creation of this series. Maintaining Imperfection embraces spontaneity and imperfection, and appreciates it in the same way that a mother works through each day with her child. Rather than aiming to create individual pieces that share a style rooted in perfection, Christina harnessed the spontaneity of the given moment that her life and time constraints allowed. Christina realizes that the only way to continue moving forward is to strive to have minimal expectations, put selfishness aside, and embrace life’s imperfections.
