Artist Interview: Susan Carr

This interview is a special one. It made it's way into more of casual conversation, and one where Susan Carr and I interviewed each other. Carr, a Cape Cod based artist, decided to visit my home and studio. During the visit, we sat and talked about the aspects of our work and process. I found that we shared some of the same views based on the interview questions. We viewed each others work and it helped the interview along. I really enjoyed our chat and what she had to say. Take a listen below. (due to irregular sound levels, this episode is not recommended for use with headphones)

  1. Wonderful interview - I love to read and listen to interviews with artists and I'm friends with you both on Facebook, and having just found this site (through Valerie Brennan, another friend of mine) I will read your interviews with other artists, most of whose work I already know through FB. I really like your work, and Susan's.

    1. Hello Fiona,
      It sounds like you had a good experience with this interview, that's great! Thank you for listening.
