    0086-Laying the Groundwork for Success as an Artist With Painter Emily Ozier

    0086-Laying the Groundwork for Success as an Artist With Painter Emily Ozier

    Welcome back. I'd like to wish all of you out there a very happy holiday season, and I'd like to thank every one of you for tuning in to the podcast and making it a success.
    To show my gratitude I’m running a Black Friday sale from Black Friday through the end of the day on December 10, 2022, for 40% of any of my courses. Just use the code FRIDAY at checkout.

    This means you can get some of my spotlight courses for under $25. They make great stocking stuffers. You might even consider gifting yourself the masterclass. Remember, once you purchase the course, it's yours to return to as many times as you like to hone your skills as an artist.

    If you’d like to purchase a course as a gift, just send me an email at Caroline@passionatepainteracademy.com and I’ll send you a link to download a gift certificate you can give with instructions on how to transfer the course to the recipient. Go to passionatepainteracademy.com to learn more.

    Today I get to introduce you to American Artist Emily Ozier. Emily, otherwise known as "EMYO" is an incredible talent. Her paintings are addicting. She tackles deep subjects with a free, loose touch that grips your attention while holding you lightly. Her paintings are buoyant with hope!

    Emily touches on so many important elements of her journey to becoming a professional artist. And what keeps coming to the forefront is don't worry about racing to the point where you feel you've "made it."

    An out-of-context look at Emily's success is pretty daunting — she's in over half a dozen galleries, she sells on commission, she sells prints, she works with a coterie of designers who buy for their clients AND she's in the middle of launching a children's book.

    What you'll hear from Emily's own lips, however, is that each of these elements took time. She'll be the first to tell you her own career is an evolution, and if you keep showing up, you'll find your path.

    And, please note that when EMYO says "for anyone who is very young in their art career" she's speaking specifically about your art career, not your age. Your art career can be young later in life if you're just getting started with making or selling your work.

    I think you'll find this interview as inspiring as I did. Enjoy.

    0085-Own Your Worthiness as an Artist with Dan Knepper

    0085-Own Your Worthiness as an Artist with Dan Knepper

    Welcome back. I am excited to introduce you to American Painter Dan Knepper. Influenced by his background as a glass blower, Dan is fascinated by the effects of light and a master at painting light into sparkling landscapes.

    During our conversation, Dan provides great insight into getting your career off the ground. We talk galleries, art auctions, competitions, selling your art online, and more.

    What I love most about this interview is that it kept circling back to the concept of worthiness and how artists can overcome the insecurities that so often hold us back. I'm sure you'll get a lot from our conversation.

    To watch the video of this interview, read Dan's bio, get his contact links, and see his work, check out the show notes at passionatepainterpodcast.com/episode85

    And don't forget to check out my online masterclass and individual spotlight classes, starting as low as $37, at passionatepainteracademy.com

    Until next time, go make something.

    0084-Make Creative Leaps as an Artist with Painter Amy Peterman - Part 2

    0084-Make Creative Leaps as an Artist with Painter Amy Peterman - Part 2

    Welcome to part 2 of my interview in progress with American Painter Amy Peterman. In this second half, we talk about how Amy sells her art, keeping production costs down, selling prints, where Amy turns for mentoring, and so much more.
    If you haven't yet listened to part 1, I recommend you go back and listen to that first, to hear Amy's bio and hear about her background, her process, making time for her art, her biggest challenge, and so much more. You can find it at passionatepainterpodcast.com/episode83.
    Amy and I met at the 2022 Waterfront Arts Festival in Escanaba, up here in the lovely Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I was honored to be asked to judge the paintings at this year's festival, where many talented artists exhibited and sold their work.
    I discovered Amy was a kindred spirit, having a professional background in graphic design and freelancing for a living, like me, while working on her paintings. We were also both raised by craftsman parents who worked with furniture, glass, and fabric. We both gave up studying a string instrument in high school to spend more time in art, and enjoyed exposure to a wide range of techniques before college. 
    We're practically twins. If she'd told me she'd also gone on a secret mission to rescue a chicken in her freshman year at university, I definitely would have been creeped out.
    Amy's expressionistic landscapes are captivating, with strong compositions and fearless brushwork. I was struck by how many paintings she had on display, in addition to prints, each more beautiful than the next. I was grateful artists were required to designate one for consideration in the best-in-show category. I never could have picked one from the others.
    In looking at her work, I could see Amy's unflagging commitment to making her art despite any obstacles or demands on her time. She is prolific, professional, and organized. I was truly inspired and I knew you would love to hear from her.
    Needless to say, Amy took the prize that day, and I can confirm she deserved it. She has since become a good friend and agreed to come on the show. It's full of great information and encouragement.

It was a joy to chat with Caroline!

I freaked out a little inside when @thecarolineitalia asked to interview me on her podcast, Passionate Painter Podcast. This was a total “get out of your comfort zone” moment for me, but I’m so glad I did it! And Caroline was so patient with me and made me feel like we’ve been friends forever. She mentions we are kindred spirits and I agree!

Not only is Caroline amazing at her podcasts, but she is an amazing painter and teacher as well (check out her portrait painting course!) I am so glad to have made a new friend in her.

Practical and inspiring!

I would heartily recommend this podcast to anyone at any stage on their artistic journey! Caroline brings wisdom, experience, compassion, and great business sense to each episode and her guests are all interesting and inspiring. If you consider yourself an artist at any capacity or even if you’re a little afraid to claim that title, this podcast is for you.
