Hello and welcome to episode 21!
This week I had the absolutely privilege of sitting down with Spanish artist Maria Gil Ulldemolins who lives and works in Brussels. Maria's creative practice is a very process-oriented and heavily influenced by her experiences with meditation. Her work explores the themes of embracing mistakes, letting go, flow, compassion, control, variations and time.
In this episode we really dive into Maria's journey of studying the visual arts in Swaziland at a young age to owning her own studio, her belief that life is like google maps and it finds a way of redirecting you to where you should be and how we all need to stop hating ourselves for hating ourselves when we're in a shitty place.
This is a great episode is you want to hear a really honest discussion about integrity, honesty and pity parties, if you want to hear a really frank conversation about the pressure to make six figures online and how it affects creatives, and if you want to feel really inspired like you have the world on your side.
I absolutely loved talking with Maria, she is such a breath of fresh air and I can't tell you how much of a laugh we had, both on air and off air. I know you're going to love Maria and this episode!
Enjoy the show!

The intention behind this podcast is to inspire and encourage creative and mission-driven women to live a wholehearted life and follow the beat of their drum.
When I'm not recording episodes and making new friends with the wonderful guests, you can find me working on all manners of magic over at That Hummingbird Life, sending free self care checks ins to hundreds of women every Sunday and helping my clients build brands they love as a graphic designer. I'm currently based in London, and getting ready for my round the world adventure with Mr. Meg starting August 2016. Don't worry the podcast isn't going anywhere!
