Focus on Female Creativity

Help us celebrate the Baltimore Museum of Art’s 2020 Vision initiative and share the story of an artist, a caregiver, a frontline worker, a mentor, or friend in our living mosaic honoring female creativity and the women who have inspired you!

In honor of Eloise Stoddart

In honor of my mother - Eloise Stoddart. She is the most creative person I know. She always made life very special as a child and even now that we are adults. Mom is fiercely protective of her children. I’ve learned so many lessons from her. Many remain with me -- to be a person of integrity, have a strong moral compass, and stick-to-it-tiveness. Do your very best EVERY TIME. This is one of my favorite pictures of Mom and me. Mom loves to personalize cards for her family and friends, and she used this photo on a birthday card she sent to me. It shows Mom and me then, and it reflects us to this very day. She’s my beloved Mother, and I’m her beloved daughter.
