Angela Morris-Winmill joins me to discuss her intriguing journey, switching from a successful career at the forefront of London high-street fashion, to working as an independent multi-disciplinary artist. Angela took bold steps in leaving the world of full-time employment to pursue her creative ambitions when the time was right. She talks about knowing when to make such a big change, the risks and challenges in doing so and how she went about making the leap. We also explore the idea that coming from a different background into the art world can be a huge advantage and how to recognise stand out skills learned in employment. Angela's fusion of fashion, sculpture, painting and drawing has brought about unique results with a sexuality and character and we dissect the eyeballs, torso and anatomy of her brilliant work!
