Today on the podcast we have self-proclaimed Fairy Art Mother Caylee Grey, a South African artist living in Germany, creator of Get Messy, and your pro excuse-squashing ninja. Her life mission is to empower amazing, real-life humans get into a regular, creative practice.
Caylee Grey starts off by explaining where her title ‘Fairy Art Mother’ came from, and tells A + K how Get Messy kind of “fell from the heavens” into her life and how she turned it into a business.
In a world that focuses so much energy beautifully curated images and moments, Caylee makes ‘MESS’ a word to strive for and celebrate! Getting messy, says Caylee, is dancing naked in perfectionism’s face!
The girls chat a bit about depression and Caylee shares the small steps she took to get out of it. Amanda talks about how breathing is sometimes all you have for the day, and that blends into a conversation about what a NonZero Day is.
