Is being disorganised part of the process – with Anna MacDonald [181]

Apple podcast


Have you ever convinced yourself that being disorganised is an essential part of the creative process – but get constantly frustrated by looking for images or planning projects? “If I’m tidy I’m not a true artist” is one belief Anna MacDonald had. Today Anna and Alice talk about accepting the way you are and how to find the mental space to support your route to becoming the artist you want to be. 

We talk about choosing your words carefully, and the curse of being ‘busy’. There’s a difference between being busy and productive and as a teacher, artist and mum, Anna shares her approach which has allowed her to develop her art and life. We discuss the different ways we use a bullet journal, and also sorting the overwhelm when it comes into organising our digital life.
