Daring to Dream Interview with Jessica Watson Thorp

by | Sep 18, 2018 | Change | 0 comments

I spent a lovely morning the other day at the studio of expat artist Jessica Watson Thorp as part of my ongoing series of podcasts called Daring to Dream. Jessica has followed her passion, taking slight diversions along the way, but has kept coming back to art. Now with four children she balances family life with work, sometimes having long blocks of time to invest in her art, but also snatching minutes where they come.

She has found a lovely balance between work and home as well as finding ways of connecting with others in what can be a very solitary profession.

You can listen to the interview here:
