An Interview with Painter / Printmaker Maureen Booth

I want to share with you the interview we did yesterday with my wife Maureen, the artist. This 10-minute video chat is thanks to the extreme kindness of our good friend, Juan Carlos Romera, who is a prize-winning producer and director of documentaries and short films. In fact, Maureen had one of the leading roles a couple of years ago in his 38-minute short, Bive, in which she played a British artist living in a Mediterranean village who falls in love with a Spanish fisherman. (You can see an account of the shooting of Bive here on World Printmakers, and the video of the film’s trailer here.)

It was Juan Carlos’s idea to shoot yesterday’s interview and upload it to YouTube. It was a lot of fun making it, and it’s great to see it online. I hope you agree.

If the painter sounds exceptionally cheeky for an interview, it’s because it’s her husband who is asking the questions. He’s cheaper.
