Rachel Power

Rachel Power
Rachel Power is the author of the new book The Divided Heart: Art and Motherhood (red dog books).

A former Canberra Times feature writer, freelance journalist and graphic artist, Rachel was shocked once she had her own child, to discover what an ambivalent state motherhood is. Unable to find any books reflecting her own experience, Rachel wrote her own - interviewing women such as Rachel Griffiths, Clare Bowditch, Joanna Murray Smith and Alice Garner about how they coped with the conflciting demands of being an artist and a mother.

Rachel Power will be appearing:

Can you have family and artistic fulfilment?
