An Unexpected Opportunity: Meera Gessner
In the 29th episode of Perceived Value host Sarah Rachel Brown is kicking off 2019 by interviewing an artist who is a self proclaimed mutt-of-a-maker working in all types of mediums, in all types of ways. From hair dressing to face painting, Meera Gessner has dabbled in it all and this multi-talented woman was recently offered an opportunity that was too good to pass up.
In just a few short weeks Meera will be packing up her belongings and moving from Pennsylvania to Iowa. The two women sit down and discuss why Meera is leaving behind her beloved city, what her intention is with accepting this opportunity, and why she needs this drastic change.
Hi, I’m Meera. I’m a mutt of a maker working in paints, textiles, paper, hair, wire, semi-precious stones, words, stories, and bars. I’ve done murals and sign-painting, costumes and face-painting, crowns and upholstery, hair tattoos and stick-and-pokes, joke-book editing, pirate-radio bedtime stories, and so far - one wedding dress. Guess I just want a piece of everything.
