A podcast where I chat to women from all walks of life about their own unique, creative journey. How they got here, how their story has shaped their creative work, what they’ve learned, what has helped them and where they plan to go from here. It’s an irregular journey for so many of us and I am delighted to offer a platform to share these fascinating stories and wells of wisdom.
