Monica Wyatt shares her journey from top TV producer (Providence, Relativity, My So Called Life, LA Law) to being an accomplished mixed media artist who reimagines unexpected and overlooked materials, transforming them into captivating sculptures.
Her career pivot came after the challenging delivery of her second child. “I was physically exhausted from the birth, and I knew I couldn’t go back to doing those days where you work until 10 or 11 at night. With one child, we managed but I knew I couldn’t give it my all anymore.” So Monica did something that earlier in her life she never could have imagined: she took herself out at the peak of her producing career. She dove into caring for her family, only to discover that something was missing. She needed something of her own. In this episode, Monica candidly shares the details of how she rediscovered her confidence, renewed her sense of purpose and retapped her creative energy by being an artist.
