    102. Guest Artists (Revisited) - Andrea Soos, Ange Miller & Wendy Solganik

    102. Guest Artists (Revisited) - Andrea Soos, Ange Miller & Wendy Solganik

    This week we have a special episode. We are going back and revisiting the very first artist interviews that I ever did. So that means you’ll be hearing from Andrea Soos, Ange Miller and Wendy Solganik.

    What Richie and I decided to do was to take a listen to these episodes and find our favourite parts which was actually incredibly hard because there are so many good bits! But we have chosen a few snippets and we are sharing them in the one episode today. We hope that they will inspire you and encourage you to listen or re-listen to the episodes to hear more.

    101. Are You Playing the Long Game?

    101. Are You Playing the Long Game?

    It’s easy to get caught up chasing quick wins and instant gratification but what if you slowed down and took purposeful action towards your long term plans? Where would you be in one year, two years or five years? What projects could you bring to fruition? A book, an exhibition, a podcast, an online course, a creative network …

    There are so many possibilities but every single one requires consistent action over a long period of time. This week we chat about our own experiences with playing the long game including how we stay motivated and on task. We also chat about the harder parts and why sometimes you just have to bake cookies! We hope you enjoy the episode and it encourages you to stay the path and keep working towards your creative goals!

    100 - What it is Really Like to Host a Podcast!

    100 - What it is Really Like to Host a Podcast!

    This one is a bit special. Our 100th podcast episode! To honour the occasion we are chatting about the ins and outs of running a podcast! If you are curious about what goes on behind the scenes you will love this episode plus there’s plenty of healthy banter and laughs along the way. One thing we have learned is to not take ourselves too seriously.

    A few things we talk about in this episode are: who does what, whether we ever argue, how much time it takes us each week and what our hopes are for the podcast’s future. We also have some tips for anyone thinking about starting a podcast. 

    Finally, a big thank to our listeners for all your support and encouragement for the first 100 episodes! Here’s to 100 more!

    99. A Message for Discouraged Artists

    99. A Message for Discouraged Artists

    Sometimes being an artist is hard. This week, in my first solo episode, I talk about the ups and downs of creative life and share a message of support to artists that are feeling discouraged or weary.

    It’s a short episode but it’s enough. In many ways, this sentiment sums up what this episode is all about. Being gentler with yourself, letting go of the endless quest for more and trusting in your own creative path. I hope you find comfort and encouragement in the episode.

    98. My Favourite Art Supplies (Updated)

    98. My Favourite Art Supplies (Updated)

    Who doesn’t like chatting about art supplies? Okay, maybe it isn’t Richie’s favourite thing but it is mine. I absolutely love hearing about what artists use right down to the little details - the size of their brushes, preferred substrates, go-to colours, homemade tools - I want to know it all! Are you with me on this? I hope so, as this week I am running through my mixed media artist toolkit.

    We did an episode like this a while ago but it felt like it was time for an update! So join us as I chat about my latest loves. From the paints that make me swoon right through to the supplies that make Richie sparkle. Haha, all will be explained in the episode!

    I also answer a few commonly asked questions including what tape I use on my watercolour paintings and how I get those pesky paint pens to work!

    I hope you enjoy the conversation (hopefully more than Richie did) and if you check out the Supply List for my latest online class, Modern Mixed Media you can all the details on the items mentioned in this episode.

Something for everyone from artists to beginners

Hi Laura and Richie,

This is my first every Podcast review, but most deserved by you both. I have been following Laura and listening to you both for a long time now and as a fellow Australian artist I thank you for being so open to sharing.

After reducing my number of art teaching days, I am a re-emerging artist on my journey of re-self discovery as an artist. I thank you SO much for your wealth of business knowledge (also loving the shared addiction of Daniel Smith Watercolours!)

Friends in the art studio

Laura and Richie I’ve been listening to your podcast on and off for awhile now and I love it. Listening to you guys whilst I paint in my studio is like having two mates around for coffee. In fact I plan to ask my husband to listen too - as I think he and Richie have a similar knack for being supportive in the artistic process (keeping their wives happy). I especially enjoyed your banter with Richie as you talked through the pros and cons of your new studio space and I can’t wait to see some photos! Thanks for being my studio ‘pals’ and making me laugh today.

Fabulous Podcasts Thank You !

Dear Laura and Richie,

Its me again, I have reviewed before, but I had to write in. I just listened to Inga and Sonal's interviews after being away from any listening for a few weeks. Both were great. I love your podcasts, they are so authentic, gentle and magical. I always leave inspired to go make some art. I cant wait to catch up on the rest of the podcasts.

Warmly,

Shalini
