    The Artist on Her Photography, Janet Sternburg Part 2

    The Artist on Her Photography, Janet Sternburg Part 2

    This week Kristin concludes her talk with Janet Sternburg, focusing on Janet's latest chapter, photography. (Featured cover art in some players is Janet's photography)
    Janet has led a very full life, personally and professionally. She’s survived cancer and earthquakes; is a fine art photographer, a writer of literary books, a maker of theatre and films, and an educator. To sum it all up, she calls herself (rightly) an artist.
    In part one, Janet talked to Kristin about her early passion for writing, her pioneering book The Writer on Her Work ("groundbreaking . . . a landmark”), her love for New York and why she left it for LA. Now, her life has totally changed... and she's not finished yet.
    Her latest book of photographs, I'VE BEEN WALKING Janet Sternburg Los Angeles Photographs, is being released on 21st October!

    No Longer Paralysed by Fear, Jen Roehrig

    No Longer Paralysed by Fear, Jen Roehrig

    This week I’m talking with brand new graduate (in her 40s), Jen Roehrig.
    Jen was pursuing her first second chapter when a freak occurance left her unable to walk. After struggling with her mental health and feelings of fragility for nearly a decade, Jen decided at 40 that it was time to pursue her long-term dream of acting.
    With an integrated masters degree in drama performance and touring theatre under her belt, Jen is now ready to take on the world- and in true The Second Chapter style, hopes to encourage other women over 35 to pursue their own dreams.
    You can find Jen on Twitter - @jen_roehrig, YouTube - Just GabbyElla, Facebook - @jrtheatreproductions, website -https://jrtheatreproductions.wordpress.com

    From Hiding in the Corner to Saying YES, Artist Jennifer Baker

    From Hiding in the Corner to Saying YES, Artist Jennifer Baker

    This week Kristin chats with Jennifer Baker, who studied as an artist but found herself on a mountaintop in Italy, raising a family and living without her art. A successful translation business took her even further away from her original passion until Covid forced her to ask herself some tough questions.
    Once she stopped hiding and started saying yes, the magic started happening...
    My paintings are an ode to life, to becoming, and to majesty. They are a reminder to take a moment to release the trappings of the mundane, to look up, down, far, and close. To be still.
    You can see Jennifer's paintings around the world at this point (!) and on her website at: https://www.jenniferbakerart.com/ (https://www.jenniferbakerart.com/) or on Instagram here: http://www.instagram.com/jenniferbakerpaintings (www.instagram.com/jenniferbakerpaintings)

WhittyLady ,

Can’t get enough! 😍

Has been on my list for awhile & I’ve already binged the first three episodes! Great pace & excellent discussions with incredibly interesting women of varied backgrounds. I LOVE that no matter how different I am from the person being interviewed, I feel that there is always something relatable & unintended “life tips” that resonate.
