A podcast about creativity, finding your voice, and lots of #RadAFWomen, hosted by internationally collected abstract artist, Molly O’Riley. Reminding you weekly that you are darling, and so LOVED... right where you are in the messy rage of life. ❤️
Hello Darlings! Welcome back to season three of the podcast! I’m your host, Molly and today I am interviewing Christy Roushey (@the.house.of.roushey on Instagram)!! She is an engineer turned artist who works mainly in lettering and botanical illustrations.
She’s self taught, a mom, and a spouse - so basically an amazing human being.
We talk about her transition from engineering into art and working from home, how that journey has changed and affected her in becoming more and more of who she is. We also discuss race, privilege, and her own experiences as a woman of color in a world of bias and unhealthy expectations.
You can find Christy and her work on Instagram at http://Instagram.com/the.house.of.roushey and on her website at http://thehouseofroushey.com
This conversation is the perfect way to kickoff the new season of the podcast as we focus on creativity, finding your voice, and raising up all the voices that haven’t always been able to be present in the conversation.
I’m so glad you’re here. 💕
