T/W: Therapy, abuse, sexual assault
Boo Paterson joins me from her home in New York to talk about therapy, art, running away from the circus, battling poverty as a freelancer and joining Tik Tok...
She was declared a winner in the American Illustration Awards 2021 and has been shortlisted in the World Illustration Awards twice.
A journalist and editor for many years, she’s a regular cultural commentator on the BBC. The broadcaster has even produced a film about her fine art and a radio programme on her unconventional life and work. Extensive press coverage on Boo has appeared across the world, including The Guardian, The Week, The Sunday Times, and television and radio.
Paterson - who lives in New York - is also an experienced creative director, forging ambitious, spectacular concepts for festivals, circuses, theatres, and advertising. Her Art Nurse art/therapy subscription boxes are to be launched later this year.
