Podcast: Heather Day, Artist


Have you ever wondered about the people who made your favorite mug, shirt or chair? In Why Do We Have Things?, Rita Mehta of The American Edit and Erin Husted of Hackwith Design House interview the independent designers, artists, small business owners and creatives behind our favorite things.

Our second podcast guest is Heather Day, an abstract artist from San Francisco. (Are you thinking, wait, what is this podcast? What happened to TAE? Read this… and rest assured, normal TAE posting will resume soon!)

Heather talks to Rita about her work, finding inspiration through a cross country road trip and her love of surfing, managing a business without taking focus away from her craft, and her recent collaboration with a fashion brand, Bon Mot.
