Australian freelance writer, editor and artist
Rachel Power is a freelance writer, editor and artist, and a mum of 2 from Melbourne.
Rachel’s book “The Divided Heart: Art and Motherhood”, has supported and inspired so many of my previous guests, and I just had to speak to the woman behind the book.
We chat about the book, why motherhood absolutely has to change you, the importance of having your sense of experience validated, why mothers are shamed for sharing their struggles and negative experiences, and breaking the patriarchal stereotypes around the way artists create.
Quotes spoken throughout this episode are taken from Rachel's book 'The Divided Heart - Art and Motherhood'
