What do Vincent Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, and I have in common? We're all self taught artists. I stumbled around in the dark as I started my artistic journey... I didn't know what paints to buy, how to varnish my work, or the differences between painting mediums. The mission of the Self Taught Artist podcast is to help artists (and aspiring artists) learn and fully discover the joy of making art. We will cover everything from the basics of painting, to how to sell your work, and beyond.

    In this episode, we check in on your 2024 art priorities and talk about the game-changing idea of taking imperfect action. I share how diving in before having it all figured out has shaped my artist journey. We break down the myth of feeling ready, emphasizing that confidence comes from doing, not waiting. I highlight the importance of action over perfection, using relatable examples for artists.
