Ursula Barton & Jailbreak Collective

Episode 101: Today I talk to Ursula Barton about her Jailbreak Studios & Collective, which is an all female group. I first heard about Ursula on Chris Guillibeau’s Side Hustle School podcast, where she talked about her signature Cityscapes; the art she created based upon her hometown, Portland’s skyline. I loved the story so much, I knew I had to get her on my podcast, so through the power of the internet, I reached out & connected!
