Today Kate Hursthouse talks about some of the key themes and takeaways from season one of The Creative Mother Podcast.
In particular she talks about building a strong support system, connecting with other creative women, investing in business mentoring, never having all your eggs in one basket and prioritising yourself, your health and your creativity.
Kate Hursthouse is an artist, creative business owner, mentor and single mother to one awesome kid. She has worked on a whole range of projects over the years - from commercial illustrations and design projects to contemporary art, children’s book illustrations and hand painted murals. After 14 years working in the creative industries, and the last eight years running her own creative business, Kate understands the barriers in the creative industry and the challenges faced by women in the arts. She is passionate about educating women on alternative ways of working and building a sustainable creative business that can accommodate their creativity and their families.
She started this podcast to try and answer the question: how do we continue to be creative and produce creative work, while raising children? Her goal is to create a little corner of the internet where creative mothers share their stories and gain a feeling of community, understanding and inspiration.
