To kick off 2015, we interviewed artist, writer and mother of one Lily Mae Martin. Lily's incredible drawings and paintings have been exhibited all over the world and focus on portraiture and the human form. A drawing of her daughter Anya is included in the current group exhibition Intersection – The Art of Motherhood at Red Gallery in Melbourne.
Lily’s daughter Anya was born in Wales and the family moved to Berlin when she was just six months old, making her quite the intrepid toddler. Emma sent her noisy family to the park so we could sit at her kitchen bench and chat about making art, having babies in a foreign country and talking to kids about death.
In this episode, we mention writer Penny Russon and Rachel Power's book Motherhood and Creativity: The Divided Heart, in which Lily is interviewed.
