6: The complex roles of Artist and Mother with Judith Farr.

Judith Farr is a mixed media artist from Catalonia, Spain. Rooted in experimental abstraction with saturated colors, geometric shapes and patterns, she brings unusual materials together in toy-like or organic entities that sometimes resemble animals or imaginary characters.  Motherhood has given her an insight into a coming together of her childhood (past) and her identity as mother (present), which informs the work. She has shown in galleries throughout the United States, England and Spain and is the mother of two children.

In this episode Judy and I discuss how the joy and pain she has experienced through motherhood has helped her connect with her creativity, how putting yourself out there can make things happen in unexpected ways, the benefits of creating a body of work, and the complexity of the roles of Artist and Mother.

This interview with Judy is honest, bright and I know you will be inspired by the way she shares with vulnerability and grace about her journey as an Artist/Mother!
