    Q&A with Laura Horn & Susan Nethercote (Part 2)

    Q&A with Laura Horn & Susan Nethercote (Part 2)

    This week the conversation with Susan Nethercote continues! We chat about our love of learning and how this helps us to keep up-to-date on topics like Pinterest Marketing and Facebook Advertising. We also chat about the importance of being free to explore as an artist and how we both express our vulnerability and multiple art personalities on platforms such as Instagram. And it wouldn’t be an art podcast without talking about our favourite supplies and paint brands!

    I hope you enjoy the conversation and if you haven't listened to Part 1, make sure you check out last week's episode.

    Q&A with Laura Horn & Susan Nethercote (Part 1)

    Q&A with Laura Horn & Susan Nethercote (Part 1)

    What was it like to create your first online course? How did you heal after a period of burnout? How important is it for artists to have multiple income streams?

    Just a few of the questions that come up in this week’s Q&A style podcast episode with Susan Nethercote!

    Suse was a guest on my podcast last year but wow, a lot has happened since then. It felt so good to be able to catch up again and talk about how things have changed. From navigating a global health crisis to making online courses and muddling our way through motherhood - it’s a juicy one. In fact, it’s so juicy we have broken the conversation into two parts!

    I hope you enjoy the first instalment and don’t forget to stay tuned for the second instalment next week!

    If I Was Starting an Art Business Now!

    If I Was Starting an Art Business Now!

    It’s wonderful to have the benefit of hindsight! In this episode, Richie and I take a trip down memory lane and talk about what we would do if we were starting an art business now!

    From developing a cohesive body of work right through to email lists and Instagram strategies - this is a big one!

    We’ve chatted about many of these topics individually on the podcast before but today we’re bringing them together into a road-map of sorts. A step-by-step walk-through of the key areas that we believe are important when building an art business.

    Getting a Studio Space Outside the Home

    Getting a Studio Space Outside the Home

    Is it better to have a studio at home or a studio offsite? A question that comes up again and again in the art community.

    I’ve always been in the home studio camp but that all changed 3 months ago! With the business growing and it becoming harder and harder to maintain boundaries between work and home, Richie and I took the plunge and leased a creative space together.

    Join us as we chat about how it happened, what we were looking for in a studio space and the pros and cons based on our experience so far.

    While it is pretty obvious that we are both ecstatic about this new development, we do want to say that for every artist it is different. What works for us might not work for you. The most important thing is that YOU are happy in the place that YOU create. That is truly all that matters!

    5 Ways to Simplify Your Art Practice

    5 Ways to Simplify Your Art Practice

    If you are finding it difficult to make art at the moment, you are not alone. There are many challenges that come with a pandemic. With that in mind, this week’s episode is all about bringing more ease and simplicity into your art practice.

    From taking up an art challenge to doing little art jobs for your future self - there’s bound to be something in there that will keep your creative mojo going!

    Richie and I also have a good laugh about the paintings that I have in the studio that are facing towards the wall. In other words, the ones that I don’t want to look at anymore! I wonder if anyone else relates to that?

    We hope you enjoy the conversation and would love to hear your thoughts on the challenge idea that Richie came up with! By the way, he doesn’t think I can do it without cheating!!!

    Sonal Nathwani - The Power of Sketchbooks

    Sonal Nathwani - The Power of Sketchbooks

    Sonal Nathwani has always loved sketchbooks. When she was a little girl she filled them with fashion designs, today they are often brimming with flowers. Throughout her life, they have been her safe place.

    Born in Africa to Indian parents, Sonal grew up in England, spent time studying art in Italy and now lives in Austria. While she has always loved art, when it came to a career choice she took the sensible option and became an accountant.

    She never fully let go of her art dream though and after her youngest son was born, she made the decision to leave her career in finance and pursue her passion for painting.

    In this conversation, Sonal talks about the importance of drawing, how she approaches her sketchbooks and the beautiful pressure of Instagram.
