    Betty Krause - Becoming an Abstract Artist Later in Life

    Betty Krause - Becoming an Abstract Artist Later in Life

    Today I am joined by abstract artist, Betty Krause. Betty started painting when she turned 50 and has built up a thriving art business in a short space of time. How did she do it?

    Well, it started with a very deliberate decision to put her mixed media art supplies away and focus on becoming an abstract artist.

    In this episode, Betty talks about removing distractions, hanging in there as you find your art style and using platforms such as Instagram and YouTube to connect and grow your audience.

    For anyone that has ever felt like it is too late to get started, I encourage you to take a listen to Betty’s inspirational story.

    Setting Intentions for 2020

    Do you set intentions for the year ahead? I love to take a bit of time to dream and visualise what I want for my creative life. Richie is more of a take each day as it comes type so this process is quite new for him!

    In this episode, we talk about how we want to feel in 2020, what our word for the year is and how we are going to integrate it into our day-to -day life.

    We also share our biggest stumbling blocks. From dealing with our ego to being too passive and waiting for things to happen.

    It's a raw and honest conversation but there are also a lot of laughs along the way. We hope you enjoy it and that it encourages you to take some time to explore your own desires for 2020.

    How Do You Find Your Creative Mojo?

    How Do You Find Your Creative Mojo?

    How good is it when your creativity flows? But why does it happen some days but not others?

    Recently, I had the most amazing soul-satisfying burst of painting. Four days of creative bliss. Talk about a confidence boost! It was so good that I didn’t want it to pass by without taking a deeper look at what on earth happened!

    Was it the new playlist I created? Or maybe it was because I was working a bit differently to how I usually do?

    Join me as I break it down and share my experiences and tips for tapping into your Creative Mojo!
