Katie Stewart said she turned to art because she couldn’t keep up with her two older sisters who were incredibly bright. Drawing was her way to do something that distinguished her from them.

With pressure on her to go to university and make the most of the opportunities her mother never had, Katie first did a degree in archaeology then had many career twists and tangents. Katie was well into her fifth decade before she finally turned back to her abiding passion for art. In this podcast she discusses her work and her journey with Helen Milroy.

Topics discussed
