South Australian water colour and acrylic artist and art educator
Julia Reader is a watercolour and acrylic artist, an art educator from Mount Gambier South Australia, and a mum of one.
Coming from a background in graphic design, Julia is a firm believer in following your heart, being open to new opportunities and that everything happens at the right time.
We chat about how her perfectionist trait stifled her creativity, how she used her art as a therapy tool to work through her control issues, letting go of your expectations, not just in art but in life, and allowing mums feel all the feelings they are experiencing, good and bad, without judgement.
**This episode contains discussion around infertility, post natal depression and panic attacks**
