This is the story of what happens when a perfectionist decides to actively go against her own nature in lieu of making the art that her soul needs.

Iris and I talk about her brave decision to deliberately choose wonkiness, ignore self-doubt, and go for process over product in order to live her true creative life. If you’re a perfectionist, Iris will encourage you to give yourself permission for your recovery to start with art.
