513: Lessons in looking after yourself with 4x Oscar winner (and 9x Nominee) Catherine Martin

Catherine Martin is multiple Oscar winning costume designer and production designer.

She’s won four of those statues, and has been nominated a further nine times.

In collaboration with her husband Baz Luhrmann they’ve created some of the most visually stunning images you’ve seen in film and advertising in the last thirty years.

Strictly Ballroom, Romeo and Juliet, Australia, The Great Gatsby, Elvis, even Nicole Kidman’s Chanel No5 campaign - the visual artistry that just showed up in your head? The clothes? Leo’s amazing shirt? That one too? All Catherine. She’s truly something.

This conversation covers the use of restriction in creativity, the joy of problem solving, Identifying useful and challenging aspects of one’s brain, balancing obsessiveness and perfection with the imperfections of life, The transition to parenthood and the change in perspective, and the reinvigoration of work through the lens of parenthood.

She’s an absolutely stunning human, and I couldn’t be more overjoyed that she said yes to coming on the show.
