Susan chats with Anne about:

  • International travel is not always a positive experience for everyone
  • Her Moving Memories collaborative project (come and join in)
  • Folk Art and being inspired by everyday, ordinary objects
  • Collage as the link from mixed media to textiles
  • Use those old pieces of fabric that you love – liberate your textile treasures!
  • Cover your background to remove that threat of a blank page
  • Writing books, teaching, and sharing our art
  • How the internet has transformed life for an artist
  • Thriving on ‘happy accidents’
  • The unhelpfulness of self imposed pressures
  • How working on more than one project at a time can be very helpful but why multitasking is not…
