Enemies Of Good Art

Our guests on today’s show are both artists and full time mothers who have chosen to home school their children. We ask if home schooling is a feminist issue as we return to former discussions around education and biology. What is the impact upon creativity for any mother who dedicates a large portion of the working week to her children. Is creativity on hold during this time or does the nature of one’s creativity change.

Martina Mullaney from Enemies of Good Art is joined by artist Lis Fields. Since becoming a mother she has moved from painting to work with photography, exploring maternal anxiety and ambivalence. Sarah Daukes was a dancer with the royal ballet 1988-1994 after which she trained at Rada and went on to act. She painted for two years with no formal training before having Betty, now 6 and a half and two and a half year old Pepper.
