Considering Art Podcast – Pinkie Maclure, stained glass artist

In my latest podcast episode, Scottish artist Pinkie Maclure talks about how she got into stained glass accidentally, how her ambition to go to art school was thwarted, her career as a singer and performer, how heroin ruined the lives of many friends, and how the allegorical power and symbolism of medieval stained glass windows inspired her to communicate her ideas on contemporary issues through that medium.
