Several works of Ledig’s capture intimate moments of motherhood, highlighting the love, exhaustion, and unique bond between mother and child. In describing her work A Mother’s Touch, Ledig says: “I want the women I paint to take up the space they need and to show up as they are. Big, with body mass, with round bellies, milk spills and tired eyes included.” Her motivation—and goal—is to show both the rawness and tenderness of being a mother; a reality that is unfiltered but profoundly beautiful for all its challenges.
