Anna shares her story of how Mama Creatives has grown organically from a group of friends to a community of over 1000 members. We discuss how to integrate creativity around your family and reconnect with your creativity after you become a mother. Being creative is innate and we are all born creative.
We talk about Anna’s work as an art therapist and how to use art as a way to help your children express their emotions. Learn how kids draw and the difference between colouring in to reduce stress and art therapy. How to do mandalas with your kids and use art as a therapeutic tool and why kids need to feel heard and acknowledged when they are feeling upset.
Anna is a real connector and is so passionate about her work and she uses her magnetic power to drive her business and truly live her purpose in life. We chat about how to cultivate relationships in business and take action, be prepared and how to make plans to achieve your big vision to attract the right people into your life.
Learn why taking time to be still, be in nature, and just stop when you are feeling overwhelmed to key to being productive and successful.
Anna is an absolute powerhouse and I know you will love listening to our chat, it is filled with practical advice and includes a wonderful list of books to read for inspiration.
I love this quote – “Creativity is at the core of everything you do”

Another amazing podcast! I didn’t know what I was going to take away from this one, but it was probably one of the best I’ve listened to. So much wisdom around creativity and parenting and working as a mama. I LOVE your creative questions at the end of each podcast Leonie! and Anna’s book recommendations 🙂
Thank you so much for inviting me to be part of this wonderful podcast series. You are a great interviewer.
And thank you Kim for your wonderful comment, that’s very encouraging that you enjoyed this chat.
PS I just wanted to clarify that Rhoda Kellogg analysed one million children’s drawings not 1,000 as I mistakenly mentioned.
I loved this pod cast as it was not only so interesting but informative and practical. As a mum I loved hearing about creativity and parenting.
