The Writer’s Lens – Interview 09: Kay Smith, How Can Faith And Art Work Together?

In case you missed it, I was fortunate to interview a fellow #CleCreative this past week, Kay Smith, where we primarily talked about the pressures of motherhood, work, and creative pursuits. Below is a link to the video interview on #YouTube as well as a short description about Kay and her work. Enjoy!

Kay Smith worked for 13 years at a reputable marketing firm in Cleveland, OH. And though she loved her work, Kay began to feel something tugging her in a new direction. A tug strong enough to make her consider leaving her established career behind and start anew – in art education.

But, it wasn’t a completely foreign space. Kay had always held a strong interest in art, even as a little girl. And with some proper coaching and encouragement early in life, she fostered that passion.

Kay is a wife and mother of four children so leaving a steady job was not an easy feat. In this interview, I talk with Kay about her transition from her corporate office space to her new office space. And how her faith in God has enabled her to discover what it is that makes us all creative; how we can cultivate that creative spark; and ultimately use our gifts to help others.
