Clever Podcast Ep. 108: Artist Lisa Congdon

On the most recent episode of Clever, Amy Devers talks to artist, illustrator & author Lisa Congdon talks about growing up being praised for hard work but not for creativity. She studied history in college, spent years as a classroom teacher, and didn’t even start dabbling in art until her early 30’s.

Her recipe for success includes grit, hard work, and NOT being a perfectionist. Listen:
