How motherhood increases creativity [with Mayi Carles]

On episode six of the Kin show, I'm publishing a conversation with artist Mayi Carles from 2016. At the time, her child was just a few months old, and she was starting the return to her work as an artist at the time we spoke. I loved her approach to how motherhood and creativity complement each other, and how she took such a gentle approach to her post-baby world. Being a new mom is not easy feat, and being a a new mompreneur adds another level of complexity to the mix.
