I was delighted to have the opportunity to appear on Margo Tantau’s Windowsill Chats podcast.
Margo and I had a fabulous conversation about creative process and finding joy.
Margo introduced the episode with these words, “Can a hobby equal creative success? (YES.) On stretching your courage and confidence muscles, finding joy, and making your niche matter. All while skiing, or drawing! with Kimberley Kay“.
The Windowsill Chats page said, “This week Margo is chatting about finding joy, spreading joy, and ways in which we can seek more joy with author and illustrator, Kimberley Kay. After a busy career in the travel industry running press offices for big travel companies she decided to pursue art and illustration, partly prompted by a serious knee injury which was the catalyst for a new perspective. Her bright, colorful illustrations illustrate positive emotions and happy times. She loves working with vibrant watercolor paints, free motion embroidery and intricate paper cutting techniques. Through her work under the brand of Inspire by Kim she encourages people to find joy.”

Margo commented in the podcast, “In your illustrations you see their eyes, you see their smiles, you see their concentration. I love that so much. You really do see how that person is enjoying what they are doing. It really comes through and they are so thoughtful. I love how you put down the colour and how you blend, the tones you use.”
Margo said about Ski A to Z, “First of all of course it’s visually pleasing and the information is great but I can see it really helping people.”
Thanks so much Margo. It was wonderful and inspiring to talk.
