In this episode I sit down with Clare Saponia, a writer, painter, and illustrator originally from London. We discuss a variety of topics, including her mixed family origins and European identity, her lifelong desire to travel, her interest in language and culture, and how these things have inspired and influenced her on her artistic journey.
She shares with us how she accomplishes what she calls the eternal juggling act of being an artist and making a living. She also shares some of the wisdom she has collected on her journey, including how she views writing as a way of connecting with herself and thus with other people. Perhaps most importantly, she reminds us to listen to our bodies and just breathe. Keep up with Clare via her websites claresaponia.co.uk and clearstarblog.wordpress.com. Enjoy!
Special thanks to the folks at RBL Berlin and GlogauAIR for providing a cozy space to talk.
Thanks for listening!
