Conversations with people who FOUND – or re-found – their CREATIVITY as adults. We explore my guests' childhood experiences of the arts, discuss how they came to the artistic practices they now love and that benefit their whole lives, and consider the barriers to creativity that they experienced between the two. My guests are proponents of visual, written and performing arts, with similarities and wild differences in their experiences. We discuss what it is that people value and gain from their new-found artistic experiences, and how their creative lives enrich their practical, necessary, everyday lives.

Have you ever wondered how I find my creativity? Probably not, but let's just say that podcasting has been a revelation to me, and gives me loads of creative 'feels'.
So when I was invited to the Podcast Show in London to record in a pop-up studio on the Shure stand, I decided I would use the opportunity to discuss the creativity of podcasting, and invited along fellow podcaster, and Creativity Found guest too, Rabiah Coon.
We talk about the processes that surround the act of producing a podcast episode - including writing show notes, which is what I am doing right now and, you'll find out, is not my favourite task.
We discuss our inspirations, our ways of working and give advice for anyone on the cusp of trying out podcasting for themselves.
You'll also hear a lot more of the recording than you usually would, because I've kept in some of the behind-the-scenes chat, partly because it illustrates some of the points about podcasting that we discuss, and also partly because they are quite funny.
'Both of us, I think, have podcasts that have a purpose. Like this is really a way of serving for me. And to encourage people to pursue things.' - Rabiah Coon

Juliet Sargeant – from medical practice to Chelsea Flower 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.

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.

Lynsey Warren is the owner and creator at Raindrop Crafts, as well as a handmade business coach and virtual craft fair organiser. As a youngster Lynsey loved art class at school, and doing craft activities at home, but she decided not to complete her Art A-Level and settled into a routine of office working.
Lynsey continued to dabble with crafting, from cross-stitch to making her own cards, but it was on a visit to a friend's house that she stumbled upon what would become her new creative passion, a craft that would literally take her on a magical journey.

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.

Susan Widlake studied Russian and Bulgarian at university. After that she turned to accountancy, even though she ‘didn’t really like maths that much’. She travelled a lot for her work in the finance and pharmaceutical industries, but at the weekends she would enjoy sewing projects, and even had a little travelling craft box to dip into on train journeys.
Susan is settled in the UK now, and has opened her own millinery studio, creating hat designs inspired by her travels, with names to match.

When you leave university with a creative degree, what do you do next? Trying to forge a career in creative arts can involve working for free and hopping from placement to placement. Then as you start earning money and gain more responsibility your role becomes more about managing and coordinating than actually creating.

In this bonus episode I’m talking with Lauren Deakin, who has found her place in the creative marketplace now, but only after a good deal of exploration.

Lou Hamilton was living an idyllic and artistic life in Scotland when she witnessed the Lockerbie air disaster. Years later she realized that the trauma of that event was still within her, and she started to address that. Lou trained as a coach to help herself and others feel courage and confidence. Age 50, Lou was compelled to start drawing again, which led to her publishing two books (so far) and picking up a paintbrush too.
