We climb inside the life of a true artisan. A woman who went to school for crafting, who uses her hands and heart to create extraordinary art.
We're giddy with excitement to share our conversation with artisan Louise Warner- Mac Dougall! Moving from guilt and shame to confidence and self-worth, Louise has taught herself how to create through life's wild storms.
Louise Warner-MacDougall is a crafter in basketry, encaustic art, lapidary, and silversmithing (don't know what these are? Listen and learn!). She is a teacher, and a traveling seller. using her creativity as motivation, she has crafted through risks and sobriety with the goal of sparking joy!

What we talk about when we talk about creativity:
Art Kitchen: Feeding Your Creative Soul is an hour-long podcast hosted by singer/songwriter Karen Morand and poet/writer Vanessa Shields. Art Kitchen aims to have open, vulnerable conversations with local creatives about living the life of an artist, how we feed our creative souls whilst also putting food on the table, and why we choose to live creatively in Windsor.

Loved the first episode of Art Kitchen! I just listened and it was really great to hear you both talking about what motivates you to create and live creative lives. I like the format and the song and the plug for a restaurant and the lingering on juicy details of food at the end.
You made me think and I had marker envy for when you had the picnic and wrote about your dreams.

I like how you aren't going to shy away from the dark corners--money, politics, cancellation, etc.
