Anna Lussenburg’s boarding school was sometimes unusual, for example when the staff purposefully put out NOT enough breakfast places for the amount of students, and while Anna wasn’t a shining star academically, she did enjoy literature, and relished being able to study the works of Shakespeare. She had a love of words, something which is apparent in the creative activity she has embraced in more recent times. Anna’s nanny training involved a lot of observation, something that has stood her in good stead as a super nanny in Canada, and as a writer of satirical allegories commenting on the social and political issues she observes every day.CreativityFound.co.ukInstagram: @creativityfoundpodcastFacebook: @creativityfoundpodcastTwitter: @creativityfoundClubhouse: @clairewaitebrown and Creativity Found Connect clubMusic: Day Trips by KetsaUndercover / Ketsa Creative Commons License Free Music Archive - Ketsa - Day Trips Artworks: Emily Portnoi emilyportnoi.co.uk Support the show
Juliet Sargeant was an academic child who loved the sciences, and at a young age decided she wanted to be a doctor, and in particular a psychiatrist. She successfully studied and practised medicine, and was on the cusp of specializing, when she took a break to try something different, just for a few years. So how is it that nowadays you can hear her giving advice on the BBC Radio show Gardener’s Question Time rather than giving medical advice to patients? In this episode we find out the difference between gardening and garden design, how Juliet won Gold and People’s Choice at RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2015, and what she has planned – in conjunction with BBC hit children’s TV show Blue Peter – for Chelsea 2022 and beyond.CreativityFound.co.ukInstagram: @creativityfoundpodcastFacebook: @creativityfoundpodcastTwitter: @creativityfounClubhouse: @clairewaitebrown and Creativity Found Connect clubMusic: Day Trips by KetsaUndercover / Ketsa Creative Commons License Free Music Archive - Ketsa - Day TripsArtworks: Emily Portnoi emilyportnoi.co.uk Support the show
Tetyana Denford is a Ukranian-American author who lived for some years in the UK. Becoming a mother meant that writing was put to the back of the queue of things she should be doing, but a dinner-time planning chat with her husband sent Tetyana on a soul search about her future life and future self.

If you are a printmaker apparently you will be very surprised to learn that Laura Boswell turned down the offer of a free Albion printing press. ‘How stupid she was’ (her words, not mine). Although the press did still make it into her possession and encouraged (forced?!) her into revisiting an artform she had embraced at university.Laura’s artistic journey from that point onward is literal and metaphorical, taking her to Japan, Cumbria and Aylesbury(!), taking on changes in direction regarding techniques, style of work and subject matter, and moving right up to date with her videos on YouTube, where she has shared her love for printmaking with her many followers, and not been afraid to show that things don’t always go to plan.CreativityFound.co.ukInstagram: @creativityfoundpodcastFacebook: @creativityfoundpodcastTwitter: @creativityfoundClubhouse: @clairewaitebrown and Creativity Found Connect clubMusic: Day Trips by KetsaUndercover / Ketsa Creative Commons License Free Music Archive - Ketsa - Day Trips Artworks: Emily Portnoi emilyportnoi.co.uk Support the show (https://ko-fi.com/creativityfoundpodcast)
Working in the creature fabrication department on  films such as Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Star Wars The Force Awakens is great fun, but full-on, with long hours that meant Emma Brassfield had very limited time to spend with her young children. Things needed to change, but Emma didn’t want to lose her passion for sewing and making. She made a success of making hand-sewn children’s toys, although felt a bit like a one-woman production line at times.Her childhood desire to be a craft presenter on television may have had a subconscious influence on her decision to start a YouTube channel teaching others how to make projects such as toys, scrunchies and hair bands, cute bags, pencil cases and so much more.

Anupa Roper has always been on the smaller side, and from a young age experienced shaming just for being a skinny person. ⁠While grown-up Anupa was busy being a teacher and raising a family, she knew she wanted to help young people to NOT feel bad about their bodies. ⁠Writing Sparrowlegs was not how she initially envisaged doing that, but as we hear all the time on this podcast, the path is rarely straight and clear. ⁠In this episode we find out how Anupa found her voice and about her continuing work with words and positive body image for young people.⁠CreativityFound.co.ukInstagram: @creativityfoundpodcastFacebook: @creativityfoundpodcastClubhouse: @clairewaitebrown and Creativity Found Connect clubMusic: Day Trips by Ketsa Undercover / KetsaCreative Commons LicenseFree Music Archive - Ketsa - Day TripsArtworks: Emily Portnoi emilyportnoi.co.uk Support the show (https://ko-fi.com/creativityfoundpodcast)
As much as she loved art at school, Sam Kimberle wasn’t the ‘art kid’. The material she most liked to work with was considered a craft material with no fine art usage, and so not valued within her art education. Sam was a good academic student and studied Eastern philosophy and then law, and worked as a lawyer for a number of years. Inspired by the Don’t Keep Your Day Job podcast, Sam did leave her day job, and returned to creating art with that same material she had loved as a child.

Ever since being awarded the coveted Creative Shield in Year 6 of middle school, Laura Reed was considered the ‘arty’ one in the family, and was lucky enough to have a good arts experience at secondary school too. Next came her art foundation course, which took her creative explorations in a different direction than she had originally envisaged. The ebb and flow of going where life takes you continued, as Laura took a job after uni that led to bigger and brighter things in the world of visual merchandising and window designs.As we have seen with other guests, a successful design career often means that your role at work becomes less and less creative, so Laura filled the creative void with her own crafting projects at home.Fast forward to making plans for her wedding, and, out of desire and financial preferences, Laura hand made decorations for the big day, including crafting flowers from paper. Little did she know that this personal project would take her in a different direction again, and that in a few years she would be making paper flowers for other couples’ weddings and window displays, publishing a book teaching others all about the craft, and even creating acrylic templates for students of her paper crafting workshops.

This episode's guest, US author Julie Carrick Dalton, made an impulsive purchase a few years ago. Some people panic buy a pair of shoes or the latest electronic gadget, Julie panic bought a forest, complete with bears and moose.Julie started her undergraduate studies as pre-med, but finished majoring in journalism, and went on to have a well-travelled life with a varied journalistic career.Her first attempt at writing a novel resulted in one good chapter, but the rest she describes as 'very terrible'. But she didn't give up, and joined Harvard's night school program to study creative writing, and learn about the qualities you need to put into novel-writing that differ from those of writing as a journalist. In this episode Julie describes how Waiting for the Night Song, her now-published first novel – there is a second in the pipeline – has been inspired by the aforementioned impulsive purchase, kayaking and picking blueberries. CreativityFound.co.ukInstagram: @creativityfoundpodcastFacebook: @creativityfoundpodcastClubhouse: @clairewaitebrown and Creativity Found Connect clubMusic: Day Trips by Ketsa https://ketsa.uk/under Creative Commons Licensehttps://freemusicarchive.org/music/Ketsa/Raising_Frequecy/Day_TripsArtworks: Emily Portnoi emilyportnoi.co.uk Support the show (https://ko-fi.com/creativityfoundpodcast)
Leanne’s father took her snorkelling when she was young, and she fell in love with the ocean then. As a teenager that culture became something she pulled away from because of its associations with a traumatic experience, the details of which her brain blocked out to protect her. Even though she was drawn to the ocean, she didn’t go in, and didn’t understand why.Eventually Leanne decided to try surfing just once, while on a break in Mexico. She loved it, but when she got back to her home town of San Diego those associations returned. Luckily she stumbled across a surf therapy group, Groundswell Community Project, that gave her back the joy of surfing and helped her face, navigate and integrate everything she had experienced.So what happens when a pandemic hits and you are told you can’t go in the ocean? In Leanne’s case a form of artistic expression is released, which completely surprised her, and she has continued to embrace and develop.

As a young boy in Bermuda, Adam Roe was fascinated by hurricanes and storm chasing. He choose to study geography at uni, hoping it would be less inside and studying and more outdoors and doing, which to a degree it was. There was also a lot of music in his life at that time, as a member of Southampton’s most organised band – very rock-and-roll – but music ISN’T where Adam’s creativity lies today. Fast forward, and when Adam started crafting with his young daughter, he found her moving on to other things when her attention waned, while he wanted to keep at it. He is, of course, not the only adult to enjoy crafting, so he now makes kits to help other creative grown-ups discover and try new crafts, all plastic free and eco-friendly.CreativityFound.co.ukInstagram: @creativityfoundpodcastFacebook: @creativityfoundpodcastClubhouse: @clairewaitebrown and Creativity Found Connect clubMusic: Day Trips by Ketsa Undercover / Ketsa Creative Commons LicenseFree Music Archive - Ketsa - Day TripsArtworks: Emily Portnoi emilyportnoi.co.uk Support the show (https://ko-fi.com/creativityfoundpodcast)
For this episode I’m speaking with Rabiah Coon, who gave herself a mission to do one particular, quite scary thing before she was 40. It was originally a one-time ambition but, thankfully, Rabiah has continued with her new creative release, even after moving from the US to the UK right before a global pandemic hit. Rabiah enjoyed writing as a child, and took some courses at college, but was scared to consider it as a career choice. Rabiah is a curious person who likes to explore new things, which is how her career progressed from serving fries to operational management and working in IT. After 20 years in IT her writing is being revived for a new marketing role in the day job, but also for her creative release as a stand-up comedian.CreativityFound.co.ukInstagram: @creativityfoundpodcastFacebook: @creativityfoundpodcastClubhouse: @clairewaitebrown and Creativity Found Connect clubMusic: Day Trips by Ketsa Undercover / KetsaCreative Commons LicenseFree Music Archive - Ketsa - Day TripsArtworks: Emily Portnoi emilyportnoi.co.uk Support the show (https://ko-fi.com/creativityfoundpodcast)

Susan Widlake studied Russian and Bulgarian at university.
