Mum of three creates abstract art paintings with sonogram images.

Irish mum, Laura Steerman, 35, tells Babble that while she works as an attorney to pay the bills, she makes art to feed her soul.

Ms Steelman began painting her own daughter’s scans after experiencing several movement scares during her pregnancy.

“Each scan showed she was doing just fine despite the lack of kicks, but I felt the black and white blurry images just didn’t do her precious self justice,” says Steerman.

“So I took out the paints at my kitchen table at home and got painting. It’s a hobby turned small business as friends requested paintings, they shared photos of them on social media, and it went from there.”

“It’s storytelling and capturing memories, emotions, personalities, pregnancy, and parenthood in a painting … No two experiences or babies are the same.”

The talented mother of 3 kids under 6 shares that people’s reactions to her paintings are remarkable – “ranging from joy, tears and gasps of surprise (in a good way!).”

So beautiful!
