Bec and Michele chat about their recent visit to the National Gallery of Victoria—which was extra special because it’s the first time they’ve met face-to-face! Meeting outside a busy Melbourne city train station was a bit overwhelming for a pair of introverts but after a cup of green tea (for the Australian) and a coffee (for the American), they were able to enjoy the modern art on display and dive into some juicy and surprising conversations.

Unfortunately the plan to record on-the-day didn’t work out, but the insights were still fresh for this session a few days later. They talk about imperfect art, surprising materials and surrendering to what wants to be made.
