Discover Your Mother


​Patricia, a.k.a. "Mummy the Miraculous"

Before she was my mother she was a concert pianist on the fast track to Juilliard. ​After she was my mother, I rarely heard her play anything, not even a simple scale. She worked second jobs just to keep food on the table and would negotiate with theaters, dance studios, and teachers, so that I could have experiences she couldn't afford. My mother always made sure I had art and joy in my life - and, to this day, fiercely supports me, so that my talent doesn't fall silent the way hers did.

I hope one day she plays again, even if it's just a simple scale.
