Ep 85 Ten Skills that Every Artist Needs

Ep 84 Using Imagination in Your Art (even if you don’t think you have any)
In today's podcast we’re going to talk about using your imagination in your art, even if you don’t think you have any. We can all use imagination in our art. The key to it is finding a way of unlocking that part of your brain. We all have it, it’s just a matter of finding out how to access it.
Ep 83 The Curse of Perfectionism for Artists
In today's podcast, we’re going to talk about the curse of perfectionism for artists. And one of the first things to consider is why you are striving for perfection. Are you striving for perfection because you enjoy the process of getting there? (That’s not a bad thing) Or are you just striving for perfection to prove to others, or yourself that you are ‘good enough?’
