Inspiring & Helpful
This is a great conversational podcast with inspiring and informative guests and information. I’ve been a visual artist for over thirty years and so much has changed through digital technology. I find the content contemporary and evocative. As a teacher, I recommend this podcast to my college students as a helpful ‘how-to’ on starting their art careers.
A wonderful podcast for artists as it delves into their thinking and origins. Good place for emerging artists and if someone has a creative block. Refreshing.
Great conversational format to help artists feel less alone! I especially love hearing from art collectors like Myra - that gave me so much insight as an artist and some new goals and ideas for how to find the people who respond to my work that way. SO valuable. Thank you Erika!
