102. Listening to Your Inner Voice + Balancing Work and Life
Sarah Matthews is a full-time artist and currently teaches bookbinding and printmaking. Her work is a part of the permanent collections of Yale’s Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, George Washington University’s Gelman Library, University of Puget Sound, and Samford University. Sarah named Mary Ruth’s Press after her paternal grandmother, Mary Ruth Bowens, who was an elder, singer, and poet.
In this episode, Sarah discusses finding her passion—bookbinding and printmaking, balancing work/family/school, and taking the plunge to do her passion full time. With four daughters—ages 17, 11, 9, and 3—she’s proof anything can be done with a little hard work, determination, and sacrifice.
