Katrina Walker is an amazing woman, and I was so pleased when she agreed to be on the show. Her energy, knowledge and compassion shone through during our interview, and I know you’ll enjoy listening to her as much as I enjoyed talking to her.

Make yourself available when serendipity comes knocking on your door.

 

 

A bit about Katrina

Katrina didn’t start her creative career as a designer though. She started in the high rise corporate world of investment banking. As a young graduate, she quickly realised that it would be more cost effective to sew her own business garments than to buy them, but it was this need for a corporate cupboard that eventually led to her ditching the glass desk and swapping it for a sewing table instead.
 

What Katrina talks about:

  • Social media for creatives
  • Impostor syndrome
  • The reality of her “glamorous” life as an instructor for big name sewing companies
  • The importance of making yourself available when serendipity comes knocking on your door.
