Parenting can be stressful, but Kayela Larson, a mother of four, has found a way to cope through art. Larson’s drawings are endearingly amusing, depicting life as a mother and all the hilarious madness that comes with it.

Classic Disney flicks such as The Little Mermaid and The Lion King influenced the artist’s lifelong passion for painting and animation. She married and had children after graduation, and her time for art began to wane. Larson said one night at the kitchen table after a particularly trying day of parenting, “I realised I wanted to engage myself.” “In something that made me feel the most like myself,” she wrote.

She felt uneasy and alienated by a once-calming and therapeutic desire. “As I glanced at my sloppy cartoon painting, I realized that “artist” was one component of my identity that I wasn’t ready to let go of just yet. I went to work straight away, so that must have been the wake-up call I needed.”

Larson regained her confidence and refined her approach, as evidenced by her work. She now utilizes life to fuel her art with her hilarious parenting comics. Scroll down to see what she’s been up to!

The other day, I took out some clay for myself and the kids to practise sculpting with. I was attempting to create a man’s face, but the nose area came out flat, making it look more like Voldemort.
