My favourite hands down
The Artist/Mother podcast is my fave hands down. It’s so welcome to have entire conversations centred around the two biggest parts of my identity and I always finish listening feeling filled up and inspired. I’ve also found so many incredible artists whose work I may never have otherwise discovered.
Ooops! Typo on those 1 star reviews! Sorry Kaylan!
I hovered by accident on the stars and submitted 2 x 1 star reviews- by total accident and I can’t seem to erase them?
Sorry about that! I haven’t even had the chance to listen yet, but I’m sure it’s incredible!
So very generous!
This podcast is ultimately the bedrock of a growing community of artist/mothers created and supported by the host Kaylan Buteyn. I am in awe of the steps she has taken to create generative support for all the mother/artists out there no matter where you are located on this beautiful planet. Kaylen has leveraged technology to positively grow and benefit the whole community. I also highly recommend the Crit groups which I have recently joined.
Thank you Kaylan, from the bottom of my heart this is a gift to us all!
