The Wind Thieved Hat

A podcast where I explore the creative process - the highs, the lows, the joy & the pain - with some of my favourite artists, musicians, writers, directors and makers.

This episode is something of a departure for The Wind Thieved Hat … it’s the first time I’ve been married to the guest. Kate Shooter happens to be my wife, but even if she weren’t I’d have her invited her on to TWTH to talk about her work. Her extraordinary paintings sit somewhere between figurative and abstract, playing with shape, colour, text and collage.

We talk about the brutality of the creative process and how important making work is to her sense of self. And we discuss what happens when you get stuck.

You can check out Kate’s work on her website here and there are a few works in the gallery below.
