So inspirational and amazing all in all
I’m short of words to describe how much I love this podcast. It has given me so much energy and has made me conquer some of my fears as I start my art journey. Thank you to Kaylan for making this podcast happen and to all the artist/mother podcast participants thank you for sharing your stories and encouraging/inspiring us many of us along the way! ❤️
Encouraging & Diverse
The podcast started months after I became a mother, struggling with this question of being an artist and a mother somehow with few examples I could think of. This podcast has become a community of encouraging diverse ideas, styles, and backgrounds. I look forward to hearing every week!
Inspiring & Empowering
This podcast is just what I needed as an artist and mother to two young children. I love listening to these inspiring stories and enjoy hearing how other artist mothers make it all work while pursuing their art. Thank you, Kaylan, for all of your hard work and for bringing something to our community that was seriously lacking and needed!
