    59: Bring the JOY back into your art practice with Danielle Krysa AKA the Jealous Curator

    59: Bring the JOY back into your art practice with Danielle Krysa AKA the Jealous Curator

    It was my IMMENSE pleasure to have Danielle Krysa on the podcast! I’m assuming all of you know Danielle, but in case you don’t, she’s an artist, mother, curator, author, and more. Her paintings have been exhibited all over the world including Brooklyn, London, Los Angeles, and Tasmania. She is the writer and curator behind the contemporary art site The Jealous Curator and also has a prominent art podcast called Art For Your Ear. We talk about everything she has going and how she manages it all while trying to stay present with her partner and teenage son, Charlie. Danielle shares quite a bit of encouragement for anyone currently in a slump or struggle with their art practice. We talk about those times when the joy just feels sucked right out of the studio and she shares some thoughts for getting it back! We both share insecurities and fears we have surrounding our work and Danielle shares some thoughts for working through those and finding confidence in your art. It felt like a bit of therapy for me to talk through that…thank you, Danielle! I’m sure many of you will be able to relate. Danielle graciously shares about the origins of The Jealous Curator , how she turned jealousy for other artists into admiration when she started blogging about them and how it eventually helped inspire her to kick-start her art practice after taking a 15 year break. She was also inspired by her son Charlie and the way he made work when he was little, but she didn’t put pressure on herself to have a big career during that time. It’s refreshing to hear her perspective of lessening expectations, making work when you can and just enjoying your kids during their young years. This conversation was a breath of fresh air and I know Danielle’s down to earth nature and her firm encouragement will uplift you! I sure felt lighter after talking with her. Thanks Danielle, you’re a true GEM! You can find more of Danielle’s art on her website or follow her on IG @daniellekrysaartThe Artist/Mother Podcast is created by Kaylan Buteyn.

    58: A review of “Painting At Night”- hosting our first group exhibition with Robin Kenny

    58: A review of “Painting At Night”- hosting our first group exhibition with Robin Kenny

    During this episode of the Artist/Mother podcast I speak with Robin Kenny, A/M Administrator! We talk about the experience of her time in our first Crit Group Program (Spring program launches 3/17) and she recaps her experience working with mentor Karen Dana. Secondly, we talk thoroughly about our first Artist/Mother exhibition…Painting At Night! Robin and I share the process we went through to get this show together, all the work that went into it and a few trails we had along the way. I am SO immensely proud of our community for coming together and making this exhibition happen. To all the artists who applied…I hope you know your work is valuable and I see you! To all the artists who were accepted into the exhibition at Fort Houston (Nashville, TN) or our online exhibition, congrats! It was such a pleasure to work with you more directly. Special thanks to our juror Allison Reimus for all the incredible work she did picking what went into the show. I know it was such a hard job!! The show is up through March 28th at Fort Houston in Nashville, TN. So please stop by and see it if you are in the area. Everyone, check out the online portion of the exhibition!! The work is so wonderful. A catalogue from this exhibition including images of the work from Fort Houston will be available soon. The Artist/Mother podcast is created and hosted by Kaylan Buteyn.

    57: Wisdom and advice on the business of art with Hannah Cole and Kitty Dinshaw

    57: Wisdom and advice on the business of art with Hannah Cole and Kitty Dinshaw

    A lot of us like to think about art as being distinct from the corporate, 9-to-5 world, but we also know that being an artist means essentially running your own small business. On today’s episode, I got to talk to two art business professionals who are also moms, Hannah Cole and Kitty Dinshaw, about the in and outs (and the unknowns) of the business side of art. 



    Hannah is a long-time artist who became a tax professional after realizing how crucial business know-how is to a successful arts career. She is a multitasking, many-hat-wearing artist/mother who writes a Hyperallergic tax and money column while also running Sunlight Tax, a finance firm specifically dedicated to helping artists and freelancers. Hannah knows the unique financial challenges of being an artist and wants to help others ensure their practices are economically sustainable through customizable services and financial education. 



    Kitty is the Co-Curator and Artist Director of Subject Matter Art Ltd, an entirely online gallery. Subject Matter Art is a woman-powered operation that encourages new collectorship in order to both better support individual artists and show prospective buyers that you can own art on any budget. With Subject Matter Director and Co-Curator Liezel Strauss, Kitty pioneered a series of lectures at the Royal College of Arts in London to educate students about the business of art.



    Together, the three of us talk about the necessity of financial education for artists. Hannah and Kitty answer some essential questions (Can artists pay themselves a paycheck? When should you outsource work to a paid professional? Which personal finance book is the best (Hannah’s recommendation)? Should you be paying galleries to represent you? Big hint for the last question: no!) and tell me about the nuts and bolts of running a small creative business including building equity, bookkeeping software, and more. We discuss the significance of unlearning narratives about ourselves as artists that stand in the way of our financial success, and, perhaps most importantly of all, the imperative of knowing our worth. Last but not least, we talk “talking money” with our kids, and I get Hannah and Kitty to each answer the famous “final 5.”



    To see Hannah Cole’s art, visit her website or follow her @hannah.cole.painter (she drops special tax tips on this account on Mondays!). You can find her professional tax services including a tax bootcamp, workshops, and additional resources at Sunlight Tax.

    56: Reorienting your art practice, your daily routines and your sense of self post-baby with Harumi Abe

    56: Reorienting your art practice, your daily routines and your sense of self post-baby with Harumi Abe

    I’m so happy to finally release this conversation with Harumi Abe, a Japanese painter based in South Florida who came to the Artist/Mother Podcast through last year’s open call. Harumi’s story proves the power of art as communication: originally traveling to the United States as a high school exchange student, she drew on her command of visual media to supplement her English skills. She returned to Miami after graduating to study painting and has lived in the American South ever since.



    Harumi crafts large paintings that merge the two landscapes of Florida and Japan. Her new home has dominated her subject matter, as she uses the scenery of her regular walks and an Everglades artist residency to fuel her work. But Japan is not altogether absent: through developing a symbolic language of color, Harumi imbues resonances of Japan in depictions of Florida greenery and vice versa. This “visual topography of her inner self” stems from Harumi’s understanding of “home” as a state of mind that is cultivated through experience. We talk about both this abstract, hybrid home and the centrality of her physical home to her practice, complete with a backyard studio. 



    Harumi left her job as a professor of art when becoming pregnant, turning towards being a full-time artist/mother. We contemplate building new routines around the pace of a child’s life and balancing artistic productivity (or lack thereof, and the guilt that comes with it!) with reorienting yourself — and your sense of self — in both your artistic work and daily life post-baby. Finding your footing while juggling the responsibilities of being a parent can be extremely taxing, but Harumi and I discuss the importance nurturing your own confidence as a mother, artist, and educator, nonetheless. Additionally, Harumi provides insight into the challenge of communicating culture and heritage to her toddler while being inspired by her daughter’s experience to relive the childlike sensation of seeing the world with new eyes.

    55: “Everything begins with a Mother”- curating Labor: Motherhood & Art in 2020 with Marisa Sage

    55: “Everything begins with a Mother”- curating Labor: Motherhood & Art in 2020 with Marisa Sage

    This episode of the Artist/Mother podcast is a special one, correlating with the opening of a spectacular exhibition on motherhood and art. It was an honor to speak with Marisa Sage who curated this amazing exhibition at the University Art Museum at New Mexico State University (co-curated with artist Laurel Nakadate). In Marisa’s words, “everything begins with a mother…” and she was inspired to by this as a starting place for the re-opening of UAM after a generous expansion. I had such a great time speaking with Marisa, hearing all about the curation process of this exhibition which includes video, painting, installation, sculpture, film and photographic works, and explores themes of empowerment, empathy, intimacy, selflessness, vulnerability, failure, anxiety, and choice through the lens of the maternal. In our conversation, Marisa takes me back to her beginning, speaking fondly of her upbringing with two parents who had no interest in art, but who greatly supported their daughter in pursuing it. She shares the moment she was “bit” but the curatorial bug and chose to diverge from her path of becoming a visual artist to a career in curating. We talk about her experience opening Like the Spice Gallery, a contemporary art gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn which held over 65 exhibitions between 2006 and 2012. Marisa also opens up about her own journey as she considers becoming a mother. I’m so grateful she was willing to take the time to speak with me and tell us more about her life this amazing curatorial project. Her story is inspiring and all the work she is doing to support artists is profound. Thank you Marisa!You can connect with Marisa by following her on IG @likethespice or viewing her website with more curatorial projects here.

    Many thanks to Marisa and her peer Isadora Stowe for inviting me out to the exhibition opening this weekend! We will be doing a live episode recording with Joey Fauerso and Jessica Jackson Hutchins. See you soon, ladies!

    54: Mandi Antonucci: high school art teacher by day, artist at night

    54: Mandi Antonucci: high school art teacher by day, artist at night

    It was great to talk to Mandi Antonucci, another New Yorker, artist/mother, and collegiate soccer player! Mandi is a mom of two who balances being a high school art teacher by day with being an artist at night. Mandi works primarily in colored pencil, watercolor, and ballpoint pen, though she’s never been one to sit still or limit herself to a given medium. Her work is loaded with personal symbolism and open-ended narratives that construct layers of meaning viewers can engage with on their own terms.



    Mandi talks about being immersed in art and art history from a young age, and how this led to her studying art history and printmaking at Nazareth College. Shortly thereafter, she became an art teacher and hasn’t looked back. She draws on her students to explore new media and find inspiration, while, as a working artist herself, she hopes to lead her students by example in demonstrating the power of art.



    We discuss building a life full of love, art, and music, even while working through familial hardship. Mandi walks us through turning towards an art practice that “feeds her soul” and illuminates (if not revels in) the hidden contradictions of everyday life, and her ongoing projects of building self confidence and continuing to fight imposter syndrome even once you’ve become established in your own community.



    Lastly, we return to the idea of legacy, the question of who came before and who will come after, to hear more about Mandi’s grandmother and the role of storied objects in tracing the passions and experiences of others.
