    Episode 12: Joan Hanley

    For over twenty years JOAN HANLEY has balanced artmaking with a meditative practice. The ARTish Plunge podcast explores how Joan’s spiritual and art explorations around the world have influenced her practice, as reflected in her book Art & Yoga. 

    Using oils, gouache, or ink, Joan creates large and small scale works with contemplative, emotional depth from her historic Harrisville, New Hampshire studio. In addition to creating thought-provoking public installations, Joan also works with other artists to help them find their own creative balance.

    Episode 10: B Shawn Cox

    B SHAWN COX is an artist, trained architect and lawyer whose early experiences in the small West Texas town of Monahans are re-emerging in his artwork through brightly patterned cowboys and sassy bouffanted-ladies. A prolific artist who admittedly creates amongst controlled chaos, Shawn shares how he juggles multiple forms of artistic expression with a need for analytical challenges and the occasional plunge down a rabbit hole.

    Episode 8: Barbara Bryn Klare

    Artist BARBARA BRYN KLARE works with “rescued textiles,” using thread as line and cloth as paint to explore topics such as fragility and sustainability. The ARTish Plunge podcast explores how Barbara, a Ohio resident with long-held connections to the San Francisco Bay area, worked as a surface designer and had a decades-long career as a technical writer before textiles brought her back to art as both a creator and curator.

    Episode 7: Blake Gore

    Episode 7: Blake Gore

    Miniature artist BLAKE GORE exemplifies the old adage: “less is more.” Favoring .15 millimeter nib Pigma Micron pens, Blake creates tiny masterpieces on 2-inch squares — and smaller. Originally from Mississippi but now claiming Virginia as home, Blake discovered his “tiny” expertise a few years ago through consistent repetition and infinite curiosity.  
    Serving as a career consultant by day, Blake explains how constraints can be a powerful tool to enhance creativity.  As Blake shares: “There’s just so much to do in a square inch.” This episode is a teeny  bit longer than most, but Blake shares a lot of sage advice for anyone contemplating a career change or shift in your art practice. Think of it as free career counseling.
