ART FOR YOUR EAR brings you stories from some of my favorite contemporary artists. When I studied Art History, the best part was, well, the gossip. I loved finding out why artists did certain things, what was going on in their personal lives, and behind-the-scenes details about other artists they knew and worked with. This podcast is exactly that ... inside-scoop stories from the artsiest people I know. You'll hear first-hand from these talented, successful, full-time artists (who also happen to be regular people with hilarious stories) BEFORE they’re in the Art History books. - Danielle (aka The Jealous Curator)

Refreshing, inspiring and exactly what I need
I always listen to Danielle and her interviewees when I am in the studio or am feeling a lack of creativity. Her joy and love for art and artists is contagious and is just what I need to help fight of my unrelenting inner critic - Courtney.
Thank you Danielle and all of the artists who come on to be interviewed!!
Ashley Longshore episode
The current episode with Ashley Longshore is the perfect antidote for the Covid virus and the insanity of the current world.
I will praise myself for not wearing a bra!
***Brilliant content - Lovely, collaborate Host***
5 STARS!!! Over the years of listening to this quirky podcast, Danielle has become a friendly voice on whom I can rely. I seem like an extrovert and even behave (mostly) like one but I really prefer to be in my studio or in my home, creating. Being part of a collaborative tribe isn’t easy for me. Danielle makes it seem possible. Her podcast is fun, interesting, full of extremely useful information and fantastically motivating. Her interviews of Artists about their lives, inspirations and crazy stories are so interesting! The talent and perseverance of many is a wonder for me to hear. If you are looking for a new podcast, even if you are not in the art world, this is a rare Gem.
