Rachel Power's 2008 book The Divided Heart is one of our favourite homages to the creative mother and is a treasured bedside book for many creative women. We chatted to Rachel in Emma's kitchen (complete with dishwasher noises!) about enjoying our work and feeling guilty about not feeling guilty "enough", how to prioritise creativity and artistic practice while raising kids and how it's okay to not enjoy crafting with your kids!
Rachel's book was re-released as Motherhood and Creativity in April this year, and features updated and new interviews with mothers including Claudia Karvan, Pip Lincolne, Holly Throsby and our own alumni Lily Mae Martin.
